BIO
 Aside from early TV exposure to artists like Max Fletcher and Chuck Jones, James has been influenced by artists such as Hieronymus Bosch, Rene’ Magritte, Thomas Hart Benton and others. He studied at New York's School of Visual Arts and then on a full scholarship, he obtained a BA from Southampton College. Early on he was a prize winner in an international art competition held at the Pyramid gallery in NYC. He was juried into the Parrish art Museum and he had a showing at the PeriRenneth gallery in Southampton. He then left Long Island for California. There, in Oceanside, he found the closest thing to an artist's "heaven on earth," a studio over a pizza parlor. He worked there for 3 years, appeared in two shows and further developed his vision as an artist. Today, he's living and working in Shelter Island, NY, and married to a psychologist.
