About James Scoppettone

Share this:

James Scoppettone’s contribution to contemporary American Impressionism has been recognized by collectors and curators throughout the world. Inspired by the work and writings of nineteenth-century French and American painters, Scoppettone has devoted his career to expanding the artistic exploration of light. Scoppettone combines concepts developed by the impressionist masters with his own talents and vision to create paintings that are distinguished by brilliant color and vibrant brushwork. Capturing the poetry of sunlight’s subtle nuances, Scoppettone’s work radiates with the energy and joy of light.

Scoppettone’s successful career is marked by the relentless pursuit of excellence. Born in San Jose, California in 1937, the artist began painting at the age of seventeen. Although Scoppettone earned both a Bachelor of Arts degree from San Jose State and a graduate law degree, his primary interest has always been art. He and his wife, Sherry, have raised five children on a 24-acre farm formerly owned by the filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Located in California’s Santa Cruz mountains, the picturesque estate provides Scoppettone with the perfect atmosphere to create his art.
