Brittany James…

Brittany James Brittany James graduated from Montclair State University with a BFA degree concentrated in oil painting in 2009 and has been a full-time artist ever since. In addition, she teaches art classes for children at Inspired Minds Fine Art School in Lincroft and adults at Art629 Gallery in Asbury Park. She is experienced in oil painting, acrylic murals, performance art, charcoal drawing, life drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. She also strongly believes in the healing therapy of art-making and self-expression and enjoys helping others create.

All of James’ paintings are derived from a combination of photo references and imagined scenes to create surreal images. As a Jersey Shore native, James began painting in Island Heights and was inspired by the beauty of her surroundings. Nature has always been a big influence in her work and continues to be today.

James has painted live on stage at the State Theater in New Brunswick and the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park during Glen Burtnik’s British Invasion shows, and was part of a performance art piece during the Summer of Love concert at Count Basie Theater in Red Bank. She has been a muralist and featured artist for the Asbury Underground Art & Music Crawl, and has shown her work in several New Jersey galleries including Torche Gallery in Belmar, Art629 Gallery in Asbury Park, Concrete Galleries in Red Bank, and George Segal Gallery in Montclair.
