“After painting for more than 30 years, I am still wholeheartedly committed to painting what I love – wildlife and nature. I take my inspiration from what I see around me in my home state of Wisconsin as well as on my vacations around the world.”

Although largely self-taught, James has done workshops with such acclaimed wildlife artists as Robert Bateman, Guy Coheleach, Bob Kuhn, Robert Abbett and John Seery-Lester.
