James Crandall


After a long career as a concept illustrator in the advertising and motion-picture industry,
James Crandall has shifted his focus to traditional easel painting.
James finds subject matter in everyday life, and is always looking for an intriguing
play of light, or the unstaged gestures of people at work and at play.
An ongoing series of paintings depicts life in his maternal grandfather's
hometown of Lucca in northern Tuscany, where he regularly visits.
Recent work also includes scenes from the rural backroads of
California's Gold Country.

He is a Master Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America,
an Artist Member of the California Art Club,
and a member of the American Impressionist Society.

Education:
