"To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue." -Buddha

In the tradition of "Saint with White Sleeves," "The Beggar Princess and the Magic Rose" and "Sleeper Lost in Dreams" comes "Virtue," a beautiful and inspirational message of hope. The depicted graceful young woman may walk a dark path, but with determination and focus on her guiding principles she will surely find her way. Incorporating one of James C. Christensen’s most popular recurring themes, "Virtue" serves as a classic and elegant reminder to stay true to your beliefs, that faith and strength will see you through the dark times.

“The candle is a symbol of light in the spirit,” says Christensen. “The candle is about being an example to others, but it’s also about keeping that light shining for yourself. Be true to yourself and to the things you know are important and don’t let the world taint you.”


James C. Christensen
Inspired by the world’s myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen’s work adds up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes “curious” looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he thought of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates -- be it a porcelain, fine art print or book -- he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen’s philosophy that “Believing is Seeing.” Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a “Utah Art Treasure,” one of Utah’s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor’s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen’s artwork to Utah’s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine’s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole were co- chairs on the Mormon Arts Foundation. He was a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator’s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care.
