In his studio in Connecticut and Chatham, Massachusetts, James focuses on creating marine paintings inspired by many years of sailing and studying the coastal landscapes. James has observed firsthand the many faces the ocean presents as the light, sands and waters react to the ever changing environment. As an avid plein air painter, James prefers painting studies on location which he later develops into larger studio pieces.
As a graduate of Vesper George School of Art in Boston, class of 1966 with a focus on design and fine art, James further studied at the University of Hartford and the Boston Institute of Architecture. James has won numerous national awards and is an elected artist member of the following: The American Society of Marine Artists, The Salmagundi Art Club NY, NY, The Allied Artists of America, The Copley Society of Boston and the Lyme Art Association. James’s professional affiliations, along with his great appreciation of French and American Impressionism provide him with the background necessary to design and create vibrant, expressive paintings that capture the mood and spirit of his subject.
