printmaking, painting, and drawing

James L. Ochs is a self-employed artist with over 30 years of experience in printmaking, painting, and drawing. He has been a university art instructor while also operating Ochs Studio for teaching and printmaking in Iowa City. Born in Denver, Colorado, he received his B.A. in painting at Colorado State University and an M.A. and M.F.A in printmaking and drawing from the University of Iowa. He gained print experience at Blacks Print Studio in New York City and worked in collage and paint at the Art Student League.

About his work, Ochs says: “I contrast things within the figure, something different opposed to it to make it more poetic and mystical, as opposed to something very classical.” His works can be found in art collections around the U.S., including the Des Moines Art Center; Muscatine Art Center, Farm Bureau in Des Moines, Library of Congress, Harvard College, and Brown University. Featured in over 120 national, regional, and solo shows, he has received numerous awards, including the Coconut Grove Art Exhibition and Winter Park Art Festival in Florida.
