James Stephen Zoller
James Stephen Zoller is a self-taught artist who has been drawing and painting for many years. He began selling his paintings in 2003 following a successful first public exhibition. His work is now included in private collections across the country.
Growing up in San Antonio, Texas, and traveling throughout Mexico heavily influenced his early style of painting. He says, "I had always been attracted to and inspired by the vibrant colors typically used in Mexican arts and crafts." This varied palette of radiant primary colors combined with the use of rich muted tones is evident in his impressionistic paintings. His work has been described as "realism with stylization" as well as "possessing a quality of suspended time."
For the past few years, a whole new range of color and light has been introduced into his work as a result of living on the coast of Maine.
