Bill James, pastel figurative painting


Bill is a B.F.A. graduate of Syracuse University and now lives and works from his studio in Florida. He was awarded the title of “Master-Pastelist” by the Pastel Society of America, “Life Member” by the Southern Watercolor Society, and “Dolphin Fellow” by the American Watercolor Society.


He is a member of the National Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and the Oil Painters of America. He was asked to be a member of the Knickerbocker Artists (once an exclusive art association consisting of only master artists) without showing a customary portfolio.


Since 1947, that has only been done one other time.

  1. Hi there.

    I think I might own a Bill James pastel. However it is signed differently than these works. It’s signed B. James

    If I sent a photo can you take a look?

    Thank you Pam
