Join the legions of fans and collectors who have made the award-winning artwork of James C. Christensen a part of their lives through his paintings, sculpture, acclaimed books and limited editions. Experience this diverse and masterful body of work in "Men and Angels," the single largest collection of Christensenís paintings ever published. This comprehensive volume brims with over 300 paintings (including many favored classics), more than 100 unpublished treasures and a selection of whimsical and inspired sketches from his private sketchbooks.

From marriage to spiritual devotion to daily pet care, no object seems mundane after it has met Christensenís inventive brush. Applying his celebrated eye for the fantastic to people, landscapes and creatures (both real and imagined) Christensen has created a rich and strangely familiar world that will take a lifetime to explore. Each painting presents a unique glimpse into the mind of the artist and holds up a mirror to the universal trials and triumphs of our own lives.

Christensenís career as an artist and art professor has equipped him to be a great communicator or perhaps the fact that he is especially articulate for a visual artist has made him a master teacher. His wide-ranging commentary is as engaging as his art. The range of subject matter and style are a testament to the artistís imagination, creativity and understanding of art history. Christensenís drive to connect with the world weaves through his work like a ribbon, over mermaids, under saints and around hunchbacks. The paintings communicate on a level that is as personal as it is universal. Enter the realm of James C. Christensenís "Men and Angels," both human and divine!




James C. Christensen
Inspired by the worldís myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensenís work adds up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes ďcuriousĒ 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 Christensenís philosophy that ďBelieving is Seeing.Ē 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 ďUtah Art Treasure,Ē one of Utahís Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governorís Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensenís artwork to Utahís cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazineís 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 Educatorís Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care.
