Realist painter and sculptor James Van Nuys was born in Whittier, California in 1955 and has lived intermittently in Rapid City, South Dakota for most of his life. He attended Wilmington College in Ohio, graduating in 1978 with a double major in art and music. Returning to the Black Hills in 1982, he began to apply his formidable rendering skills to the landscape that he loves: the Black Hills, the Badlands and the small forgotten prairie towns that dot the map of western South Dakota.
