James Bassfield grew up in Richmond, Virginia where he began his love affair with art at an early age. Over the years, he taught himself to draw and paint in most any
medium. After graduating from Hampton University with a degree in electronics, James enjoyed a 30 year career with IBM while still becoming prolific in his art.
In 1991 James was commissioned to draw a pencil portrait of then Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder, which was used on over 3,000 invitations for the B’nai B’rith International Great American Traditions Award and presented to the governor.
In May of 2002, James and fellow artist Jennifer Kirby opened the Crossroads Art Center where James’ current works can be seen in his studio
