Member Since December 2007
Artist Statement C.J. VanJames works in oils and color pencil. All media allow
the best

expression of the subject's nobility, energy and beauty.
The works

created, take-off nad dramatically go beyond prosaic
boundaries of

nature's images and present startling and alive
forms. Alive, that is,

from a soul's perspective.



VanJames grew up in the western part of the United States. Her
first

art commissions came during her tenure in First Grade,
Elementary

School, from art admirers. During High School, even
though many

pieces of her work were stolen from the schools art
studio by secret

art admirers, VanJames celebrated graduation with
a solo exhibition.

VanJames graduated from Colorado State
University with a Bachelors

of Fine Arts. An active life long artist
and painter, works are created

in the realist, representational and
contemporary traditions that are

inspired by a passion and love of nature.



An accomplished writer and public speaker, VanJames has
appeared

as a guest artist on community television art shows. As a
past

member of her City's Art Advisory Board for art in public
places, she

is now a member of the local Art Guild and the Art
League of Denver.

Works are found in city and corporate art collections.
