James Langley is an artist and professor of life drawing, and portraiture at Savannah College of Art and Design.  He paints by commission from his studio in Savannah, Georgia.  Langley is a painter of portraits and the poetry of places infused with the symbol and stories embodied in the human figure. His reverence for the nude as an art form, imparts vitality to his more abstract architectural, decorative, and ornamental painting for both sacred and profane settings.
