James Huff


A dedicated believer in the power of art and art education, James Huff opened the Huff Art Studio along with his wife in 1972 and oversaw operations for forty years. During his career, Huff was passionate about speaking out against injustice and met with curators and administrators at museums and institutions to discuss the need for inclusivity in art and historic institutions. He was a mentor for new artists, taking time to teach them how to package and market their artwork.

His art style is most aligned with hyperrealism. Huff’s Reflections was part of his traveling exhibition titled Portraits of Dignity where his work was praised for its hyper realistic details.
