Comments about the Artist



Emily James is a remarkable artist with singular talents. I am a psychiatrist assisting people in healing from life’s traumas, and it is essential that my office has a serene and inspiring decor that could enhance my client's healing journey. Previously I had a cherished Emily James original hanging in my therapy office (titled “Path to Tranquility”), where my clients frequently noted that painting's exquisitely detailed beauty and overall sense of peacefulness. Based upon that experience I chose to decorate my new office suite exclusively with Emily James paintings.

Emily’s “Tea at the Ritz” transforms my waiting room, magically creating a window overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. As one walks closer to “Tea at the Ritz” it feels as if you can enter the painting and stand on its balcony. With Emily’s artwork throughout, my office suite is “office sweet”! My clients and I are inspired daily by Emily’s genius in creative expression. I am blessed to know Emily and to be a beneficiary of her masterful art talents.

Each magnificent painting is exquisitely executed, incorporating expert technique alongside a prism of masterful colors. When combined with her divine talent, this master artist’s diverse and expansive subject matter captivates audiences of all ages. Creating is the core of her being, and one of her greatest passions in life is to share her talent by creating beautiful artwork for others to enjoy.

Emily’s work continues to bring us special joy, from a painting of our home in Atlanta where our children were born 25 years ago, to many paintings of the tropics we now call home, to a very special painting of Tuscany and all the associated memories. Emily has the ability to capture on canvas such realistic images that her paintings are not just a work of art, but they bring a warmth and life to our walls and our home.

A-R-T & Associates celebrated its 40th anniversary recently. Undoubtedly the very best part of that landmark is working with Emily for the last 23 years. It is one of those rare business relationships that turned into a beautiful collaborative friendship. Our role in that collaboration has been simple, joyous, and oh so very easy. We introduce people to Emily and they in turn enjoy a lifelong relationship with her and her beautiful art. We have never had to “sell” Emily’s work to our clients. They see it, they like, and they commission one painting or a series for their corporate or private collections.

The real joy is hearing a client talk about Emily’s warmth, talent, and style. She has always been a dedicated artist ready for the challenge of a new commission with an eagerness and creativity I have never seen from anyone else. Her humility and perspective on life, living, and her art are nothing short of spectacular. No other artist has given so much effort and creativity throughout the years. In my business, it is rare to find one great artist in a lifetime. She is my great artist and my dear friend. Who knows that the next 23 years will bring us!

You don’t just love looking at Emily’s paintings, but you actually experience them. This is because of the startling realism she emotes.  You see a bird’s wings in flight, feel the stillness of a pond, hear the quiet of the meadow in bloom… Imagine incorporating the sun glistening on water combined with reflections of boats on a shoreline. Also, her exotic locations carry us directly into the courtyard of a French café or an Italian piazza or a Greek fishing village, each with their own unique ambiance.

Emily was born an artist.  She could draw a stunning likeness of a person or object or landscape at a very young age.  She has evolved into a consummate professional whose paintings are so realistic they look almost like photographs.  Her talent certainly puts her in an elite league of the most renowned artists of our time.”
