James Dodds (b.1957) is a British artist. His paintings and prints are inspired by boats and boat building. After being apprenticed as a shipwright in Maldon, Essex, he studied at Colchester School of Art, Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. His work follows the coastal variations of the simple workboat.
