About the artist
James Richards (AIS) is an American Impressionist painter who specializes in oils. He was born and raised in the rural Southeast and spent the days of his youth exploring the farms, fields and forests of his hometown. Driven by a passionate connection with nature and a deep sense of obligation to relay his vision in the most truthful manner possible, he began painting at a very young age; by the time he was a young adult, he had already won numerous awards for his pieces.
James has spent years studying the nuances of paint and developing a keen sense of understanding and control over the medium. He is now regarded as one of the top oil painters and instructors in the country. He considers teaching and sharing his knowledge to be his primary purpose and true calling as an artist. He is a highly sought-after teacher around the world, conducting workshops across the US and Europe. His mentoring program has a year-long wait list, and spots in his monthly workshops sell out within hours of being announced.
James has won multiple national awards and is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society (Signature members have earned their titles by showing exceptional impressionistic fine art). in 2015 he was awarded the top prize of "Best in Show" out of hundreds of submissions in the American Impressionist Society's Annual Competition.
