There are only a few people lucky enough to create a world of their own and make you wish you could live in it, and James C. Christensen is one of them. Inspired by the world's myths, fables, fantasies, he fills his prints with wonderful people, places and things as real as your adult dreams and as beloved as your fondest childhood memories.

Born in Culver City, California, in 1942, James Christensen was raised in Southern California. He attended the University of California at Los Angeles and Brigham Young University. He has taught art in secondary schools, worked as designer and illustrator for the New Era Magazine, and is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Brigham Young University.

Christensen has been successful in both illustration and gallery art. He has had one man shows in California, Utah, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. His work is represented in museum and private collections in North America and Europe. He was commissioned by Time/Life Books to do a number of paintings for its "Enchanted Worlds" series. His paintings have also appeared in Omni magazine and numerous fantasy book covers.

Christensen was featured in the NASA exhibition, "Visions of Other Worlds". His work may also be seen in the New York Society of Illustrators Annual, American Illustration, and Outstanding American Illustrators, recently published in Japan.
