Born and raised in the Bay Area of California, artist James Richardson, was exposed to cartoons and comic books at an early age.  This was the catalyst for a desire to tell stories and share images of the things he finds inspirational.  This led to taking several art classes and also attending the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. 

  Years of picture making and focus on drawing and painting with several different medias have been displayed at four different one man shows between 2012-2018 in Oakland California. 

  James still resides in the East Bay of California where he was raised.
