An aficionado of film and film history (including mainstream, underground, and fetish films), he is also interested in Victorian and Edwardian era as well as prewar to mid-20th century corporal punishment erotica.
He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and currently lives on the coast of New England. His pen name is an homage to James Lovebirch, which in turn is a pseudonym used by one or more authors of vintage S&M novels. Since 2010, Jameslovebirch has been a highly active editor at the Spanking Art wiki. For more detailed information on his work, see his user page.
Jameslovebirch has produced a number of short art films and parodies as well as two spanking videos under the label Sting-Ray Productions. Both videos, Punished Schoolgirl (2003) and Final Exam (2008), are M/F (with amateur models and Jameslovebirch as the disciplinarian).
Jameslovebirch has written extensively for Wikipedia and the Spanking Art wiki. At the Consumer's Spanking Video News & Reviews site, he has written reviews of several spanking videos by Lupus Pictures, Mood Pictures and Raven Hill Studios as guest reviewer JBI.
He has exhibited paintings, including a one-man show, at various galleries in the U.S. In a separate line of fetish-related art, he has done portrait sketches of adult video stars and other works inspired by vintage erotic photographs. This artwork is generally signed J. Lovebirch.
