“Whimsical” is the word most often associated with James’ exuberant

paintings with their distinctive glyph borders.  In the Aschbacher universe, fish float in the sky, animals dance and people fly among the stars.  Aschbacher says, “Art is a chance to make magic.”

    Besides his gallery painting, James has painted 3 public murals as well as 10 school murals, working with elementary students at local schools in Santa Cruz County.  In 2005, James received a Gail Rich Award, along with his wife, Lisa Jensen, for their contributions to the Santa Cruz Arts Community.
