James Gilbreath: Born and Raised in Texas, James’ love of art began in elementary school. And every art class he had in the duration of elementary school, then jr. high and high school, he excelled and won ribbons. At the age of 15, James was introduced to oil painting and his love of art grew to a whole new level. He continued to enter art shows and win ribbons, including the State Fair of Texas several years running.

Slight Juxtaposition by James Gilbreath

After several decades of painting realism, James began to think that was an awful lot of time and effort to end up with something that could have been achieved in seconds with a camera. With the help of very talented art teachers, he switched over to acrylics and began to loosen up and use bright colors.

Now James uses his imagination more than his eyes to create his view of the Texas Hill Country that he loves so much. He is having more fun painting than he ever thought possible. If he’s not painting, he’s thinking about painting.

James’ work adorns walls from Houston to San Antonio to Fredericksburg, Texas and, of course, all around the DFW area where he lives. He hopes to one day move to the Texas hills, but until then he will continue to paint them in his own unique style.
