James C Varnum

Newton, MA

I am an experimental watercolor painter. I studied art in both Boston and San Francisco, and hold a B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. My paintings are combinations of layered colors, movements, textures, and lines/marks on traditional watercolor papers and on substrates such as Yupo and Terra-Skin.
