“Angels are wonderful beings of power and light who defy the laws of nature, death and gravity,” says James Christensen. “I prefer to often paint angels as beautiful winged women. The feminine side of human nature communicates angelic qualities – peace, encouragement, support and unconditional love. The inclination or tendency to help or do good for others we get from our mothers.

“Christmas, beneath all its wrapping, is a yearly reminder that through learning to be better people we attain a manner of godliness. It’s important that as people we do our best with the gifts we are given: with our bodies, our minds and our hearts. Grace’s heavenly message is that kindness and goodwill are gifts of the spirit that keep us on the proper path. This is a thank you painting for the angels in my life and for the feeling that I am not alone. We all have angels watching over us and maybe a couple of fish for good measure.  A little magic can't hurt.”


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.
