James Ziemer (b. 1940, Washington, DC)
James Ziemer has had no formal training in art but has an exceptional natural gift for observation and creating realism in paintings. Portraiture is his favorite form of art and his gift for capturing likeness and personality is apparent in his work. Nature and wildlife are also favorite subjects for him. Creating the mood and “story” can be the most arduous part of a painting, all before the first stroke is applied to the work. He works mainly in acrylics for the brilliance of color and fast drying time for detail painting, while Portraits are done only in oils or pencil.
He has displayed and sold his work in many art shows in both Va. and Ga. as well as several of the local juried galleries. He has won many awards for his work but much prefers the personal comments he receives when a work is appreciated and understood by the viewers.
