Biography:

James Fiorentino was born in Somerset , New Jersey in 1977 and currently resides in Hunterdon County , New Jersey with this family. Prestigious companies, galleries, museums, politicians, athletes, and entertainment personalities have commissioned James. James has had the honor of painting and meeting Yogi Berra, Cal Ripken Jr., Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Muhammed Ali, Congressman John Lewis, Buzz Aldrin, President Gorbachev, Desmond Tutu and hundreds of  contemporary athletes. His artistic ability has evolved into more than just a childhood hobby. James has painted and illustrated hundreds of intricately developed works in watercolor since he was a young child. Like many artists, Fiorentino enjoyed painting at an early age; however, his talents displayed a unique maturity for someone so young. While others his age were coloring rough images, his mother Jackie noticed that he could draw fully developed anatomy at the age of three. He was recognized as a prodigy and has been prolific ever since. Included in his diverse collection are photo-realistic portraits ranging from sports figures and celebrities to everyday life, most recently adding wildlife and landscapes to his portfolio.

James is a member of the New Jersey Watercolor Society, Garden State Watercolor Society, American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Salmagundi Club, Society of Animal Artists and Artists For Conservation. James is also a trustee of the Raptor Trust of NJ and D & R Greenway Land Trust.
