James Van Fossan began his oil painting career studying with Duffy Sheridan. "He was responsible for getting me started in oil painting and was hugely influential and inspirational, and still is. He is a model of discipline and excellence. Although I only spent roughly 20 hours in his studio watching him work and listening to his views on beauty and painting, I will always hear his voice in my head as I paint. I am forever thankful for that opportunity".

James currently paints in his home studio located in Eagle, Colorado.
