Biography from Whistle Pik Galleries:
James Robinson, a native of the Lone Star State, is proud of his heritage. His ancestors we're early pioneers to Texas in the early 1840's. In those days Texas' unspoiled beauty, untraveled terrain, rugged bluffs and creeks dominated. James was inspired by their stories and chose Texas's rugged landscape as his primary subject matter. An intimate knowledge of Texas and the many facets of the western landscape are obvious when one views a painting created by the artist.

Born in Houston in 1944, James always knew he would be an artist. He was committed to his education and earned a BFA. He studied both commercial and fine art as a free-lance designer and illustrator, polishing his painting skills on the side. It was at this stage in his career that his dad, J.C. literally absconded with one of his paintings and marched into a local gallery to show what his son could do. From that day on, he dedicated his life to fine art and has enjoyed a most remarkable career.

James has always been influenced by such artists as Frank Tenney Johnson, James Reynolds, Howard Terpning, John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla. He seeks to evoke these qualities in his own work and establish his own niche in western art by unique combinations of light, color and action to leave a lasting impact on the viewer.

James has won numerous awards including "Artist's Choice" in 2010 and "Best Group" in 2007 with a cash award of $5000 from the Briscoe Museum's Night of Artist's show in San Antonio, Texas. Another honor was "Olaf Wieghorst Award" for the best painting at the 2007 Mountain Oyster Show in Tucson, Arizona.
