This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James David Thomas moved often as a child from the Pacific Northwest, rural New Jersey, the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and finally, to the vast Mojave desert of California. There he witnessed immensity and grandeur on a daily basis where human scale becomes insignificant in the scope of geological time.

From an early age art was an activity that occupied most of his time. Soon after graduating from high school, he enrolled at the Otis Art Institute of the Parsons School of Design where he studied with Emerson Woelffer, Matsumi Kanemitsu and Tom Wudl. He received a BFA in 1984 in Fine Art with emphasis in painting and sculpture. His first professional shows were in 1986, with his first solo exhibition in 1988. He has had 11 solo exhibitions, and over 40 group shows.

His paintings of the northern Mojave Desert depicted the immense beauty and scale of that region.

In the late 1980's, he began painting the urban landscape with its attention to the infrastructure of the human imprint of lights and constructions. More recently are direct observations of the coast, with human interactions and the mythologies played out in its metaphors of water, light, and scale.

"Hemispheres", United Airlines magazine, October 1999.
