When creating the artwork for the BIOEFFECT Holiday Gift Set (Winter Skin Care Set), James was inspired by a visit to the greenhouse where BIOEFFECT grows barley.The complex pattern is woven from BIOEFFECT's characteristic green stripes, and the shape inspired by barley and EGF itself represents a swirl.
 
"I was very inspired by the depth of science behind BIO EFFECT, and it was a surprising discovery to witness the entire magical process involving barley. After a visit to the greenhouse, I Wanted to somehow reflect all these aspects in the design, incorporating barley and logos microscopically and macroscopically to create something in another world with scientific roots.
 
I started by studying EGF in detail and was immediately drawn to its physical microscopic structure.I'm a textile artist, so I remembered ribbons and threads.
Much of my artwork focuses on the process of transformation, trying to capture the moment of transformation.Therefore, I wanted to grow these EGF ribbons from the logo and transform them into barley with a silver tip.After sketching this, I started testing the design with embroidered green thread and manually added metallic silver details until the finished design appeared. "
James first came to Iceland in 2009 to work with Icelandic singer Bjork and spent a lot of time. "Soon I started to feel like a home, so I moved to Iceland. Since then, this is my home and my workplace. Living in the nature of Iceland gives me so much joy and peace. I don't think I'll live anywhere else in the future. "

James himself admits that he wasn't always good at maintaining good skin care, but when he moved to Iceland it improved a lot. "I started going to the pool every day and incorporated skin care into that routine. I usually prefer simple, pure products with as few ingredients as possible, so they are very clean, such as rose water and rosehip seed oil. I love to use BIO EFFECT with the basic and organic ones. BIO SerumIs an absolutely invincible classic item, but lately IEssencelove.It looks great and is used as a toner after cleansing.otherEssence and moisturizerIt's the perfect soft base for putting items on top.
