My mother got me started at a very young age when she taught me how to draw small airplanes dropping bombs on people(that should have been a clue!)

After a long stint in the Marine Corps that included combat in Operation Desert Storm, I went back to my art and started anew.

Needless to say as the years passed by my work improved. In my artistic pursuit I have worn many different hats. I have done both mechanical and architectural drafting, sculpture, both acrylic and oil painting, watercolor and now, finally, I have entered the magical realm of painting with pixels!

I have had a lot of encouragement along the way and I sincerely appreciate all the help, be it a kind word or tip on how to do something better or the support that I have from family and friends!

My biography wouldn’t be complete without mentioning some of my artistic influences, in no particular order they would be:

Larry Elmore, Toxicangel, Ravenheart, Royo, Todd Lockwood, Matt Stawicki, Clyde Caldwell & Nene Thomas.

My name is James Lyons and I am the artist whose work you see on this website.

I started in wildlife art, but I am now into fantasy art as well.

My only hope for my work is that it touches someone, I have been accused of having less than thrilling work, but I don’t feel that the goal of my work is to be “thrilling”. The goal is to transport the viewer to a place that he or she may never get a chance to see in real life, if I can do that, then I have accomplished my goal as an artist.
