About

Lesley James Studios Virginia artist Lesley James is best known for her unique portraiture of pets and people. She works primarily in oil on canvas or panel. Her style is best known for its illustrative crispness and striking use of color. Lesley enjoys painting relational subject matter that is cherished by her patrons. She loves to create personalized heirlooms for people which will be handed down with their stories for generations. Lesley has been influenced by many artists, including DaVinci, Norman Rockwell, and Joseph Lorusso. She is just as inspired by the masters as she is by her peer artists, Tracy Ference, Larry Adams, Dede Gold and Margaret Horvat. “The passion to capture an emotion or precious snippet in time is what moves me. My work will continue to grow as I do, and that is what keeps art so exciting for me. That is why I will never have to retire, nor want to.” —Lesley James, American Painter
