James Coleman — Artist, when he was 18, James Coleman's first painting was bought by someone with an eye for talent: Roy Disney. That spawned his designing animation backgrounds for over nine feature films and over 30 short subjects, including: Winnie the Pooh, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. Now, as one of the most collected artists in contemporary fine art, his impressionistic and luminous paintings intrigue the eye, touch the heart, and beckon the soul.
