This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Massachusetts, James Camlin was a painter, primarily in watercolor, of landscapes, especially scenes of New England including Cape Ann, Montana, and the Canadian Rockies. In the 1970s, he began painting a series of western paintings.

After Camlin studied on full scholarship at the School of Practical Art in Boston and in Rockport, Massachusetts with Aldro Hibbard, he was primarily self taught.

He joined the Army in 1942 and while overseas, won a prize in an English art exhibition at Colchester Castle. He was also a lithographer for Rust Craft Greeting Cards in Boston and Dedham, Massachusetts.

For many years, he and his wife Ruth lived in Melrose, Massachusetts.

Camlin exhibited regularly throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and venues included the National Academy of Design and the National Arts Club in New York City; the North Shore Art Association; Ogunquit Art Center in Ogunquit, Maine; Copley Society in Boston; Une Selection l'Oeuvres Contemporaines in Geneva, Switzerland; and Grand Prix de la Cote d'Azur, in Cannes France.

He also did commissions for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

Among his art-related memberships were the Allied Artists of America, American Artists' Professional League, Copley Society and Art Associations of the North Shore Cape Cod and Reading.
