James Bassfield Artist



James Bassfield


James Bassfield grew up in Richmond, Virginia where he began his love affair with art at an early age. Over the years, he taught himself to draw and paint in most any medium. After graduating from Hampton University with a degree in electronics, James enjoyed a long career with IBM while still becoming prolific in his art. In 1991 James was commissioned to draw a pencil portrait of then Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder, which was used on over 3,000 invitations for the B’nai B’rith International Great American Traditions Award and presented to the governor. At present, he accepts individual large or small commissions in pencil, watercolor, oil or acrylics, and is proud to have many of his works hanging in private collections throughout the United States. In May of 2002, James and fellow artist Jennifer Kirby opened the Crossroads Art Center where James’ current works can be seen in his studio.
