TUCKED into a charming courtyard on Naples’ 5th Avenue sits the wondrous gallery of native Floridian artist Emily James. It’s no surprise her gallery was voted “Naples’ Best Gallery” for the fourth year in a row, and two of her images have been among the top 50 selling prints worldwide. James was also selected an “Outstanding American Woman in the Arts,” and her appreciation for her incredible talent is evident when she declares: “I didn’t decide to become an artist; I was born an artist. It has been a truly magical journey, and I am still spellbound as I watch an image unfold before my eyes.”
Gallery visitors can enjoy a variety of styles, subjects and sizes from which to select, and the joy of having a personal interaction with the artist pleases both artist and collectors. James also specializes in creating custom pieces for clients.
For Emily James, what she finds most fulfilling in her business is seeing others enjoy her work. “My lifelong dream was having my very own gallery,” she says, “and it has indeed been a dream come true in every way. I am truly blessed and thankful.”
