James Christensen is a well-known contemporary Latter-day Saint artist. He is often called a fantasy artist because his most popular works include unique people, places and things that exist somewhere between adult dreams and childhood memories. Christensen has won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. His first book, A Journey of the Imagination: The Art of James Christensen, was published to great acclaim in 1994. Over a half-dozen subsequent publications have been very popular and successful. Christensen has received commissions from both Time Life Books and Omni to create illustrations for their publications. His work has appeared in the prestigious American Illustration Annual and Japan’s Outstanding American Illustrators.
