Welcome to Bandeela, home of Dennis and Julianna James. We are located in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.
We live in a rural community surrounded by beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife. Exploring the many trails in nearby State Parks, Forests and Preserves on horseback or on foot is one of our main activites. Sometimes our explorations are on the lakes and rivers in our canoe or kayaks. Whether hiking or on the water, Maggie our 10lb. Rat Terrier is along for the adventure. We also enjoy metal detecting and researching local history. A shared interest in recording our hobbies thru our digital photography has led to the creation of the many galleries on this site.
We are both fortunate to be able use our creative talents in our working lives. Dennis is a master craftsman in wood. Julianna combines her art background and many years of professional Photoshop experience in the creation of tapestry products for a leading manufacturer of woven products.
Chameleon Studios is the graphic design studio located on this site. If you need a new website or are looking to refresh your current site with great graphics, follow the link to Chameleon Studios. We do logos and design layout for a wide range of media including business cards, brochures and tapestry. See the online gallery for examples of our work.
