James Coleman is a name synonymous with sweeping skies, tropical rain forests, rich deep woods, silent deserts and stunning oceanscapes.

Coleman began his career with The Walt Disney Studios in the summer of 1969, when his mother, who had been working as a secretary with Disney since the Hyperion days, got him a job in the studio’s mailroom. His big break came when he entered one of his paintings in the studio art show. Several of the Disney artists viewing his work saw his potential and realized he had an untapped ability and encouraged him to go into animation background painting.

Walt Disney Productions welcomed his creative energies. His first film,Winnie, the Pooh and Tigger, too, sparked his interest not only in painting backgrounds but also in background design and color styling.

After completing The Rescuers, his first feature film, he was promoted to Background Department Supervisor, a position he held for nearly seventeen years. While at Disney, James styled and worked on twelve films and over thirty short subjects which included The Fox and the Hound, The Little Mermaid, and the Academy Award-winning, Beauty and the Beast. All of these animated classics came to life with James Coleman’s background images gracing the silver screen.

In 1991, after twenty-two years with Disney, James left to pursue a new career. He was ready to devote all of his time and talent to the love of his life, fine art. Today he continues to illuminate the art world with vibrant colors, gentle moods, powerful design and exquisite detail.

Coleman’s contribution to the debut portfolio of The Pixar Collection is a perfect pairing of artist and film, Coleman’s lush environments and colorful palette are perfectly suited for Nemo’s beautifully intricate underwater world in an exquisite piece titled “Come Out and Play”.
