Artist / Personal Statement
Artist Statement
My paintings and drawings are an exploration of the human condition
and the search for spirituality. I am drawn to the rich visual imagery
found in the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, mythology,
spirituality and works of literature. I create images that reflect how
these stories connect with me visually and emotionally.
I often use my own image as the subject. While some of my pieces are
traditional self-portraits, many use my image as a vehicle to portray a
character. I represent my subjects using various drawing and painting
materials, along with different stylistic approaches, which allows my
work to change and evolve.
I am inspired by the drawings, composition and color palette of the
Italian Renaissance and the Baroque periods, as well as the German
Expressionists’ movement. These techniques influence my approach to
every blank canvas or piece of paper.
Pictorial images are one of humanity’s most fundamental and ancient
means of expression and communication. Visual art along with other art
forms both represent and transform the human experience. I am
grateful and blessed to be one who carries this tradition.

Hi James, 


Better late than never on corresponding :). Visions of Peace. That WAS a wonderful event. I only played a small part in orchestrating it all but was grateful, too, to be involved in it. I am so glad you have joined CIVA! I hope you find it nourishing!

Hi James,  Nice to connect with you.  Your portraits are beautiful. I actually don't live near Sante Fe but live in southern NM.  We still have a very vibrant arts community here which I am deeply involved in but it's not the art mecca that Sante Fe is.
