Have you ever done something that others told you that you couldn’t? Have you ever felt so certain that your idea was a great one and that you deserved the success you desired? James Trend is a young professional fine artist and entrepreneur who possesses these beliefs. Meet the Boca Raton creative who is reshaping the art world by bringing new creativity and fun like never before.
As the owner of James Trend Designs LLC, James Trend is a lifelong professional artist whose works include commissions, murals, commercial art, and digital art. With James’s team of 5 talented and dedicated individuals, the goal is to provide the highest quality and authentic work when bringing anyone’s dream to life! James and his team will be in Delray Beach this month, so make sure to stop by!
As part of his first solo art exhibition, James will release his new Fine Art series “The Floral Collection” in Delray Beach in September 2022. At the same event, James and the crew will release their new NFT collection. Being able to make people smile and being able to create what he wants whenever he wants are the most rewarding aspects of James’ work.
James’ journey has not always been easy. He mentions, “I’ve always been creative and loved painting and drawing in my formative years, but never looked at it as a career. Growing up, I was told by many teachers and adult figures that being an artist was not a career path and that I could never make money from it.” This stuck with James for a while and made it hard for him to commit and believe that he could be doing what he loved to do and live freely. When he was in college, one of his friends wanted to purchase one of his paintings. His first sale was that piece from his friend. It was his friend who encouraged him to pursue what he loved and cared so much about.
For James, success requires perseverance, determination, self-awareness, kindness, selflessness, and most importantly, strong belief in yourself. It is his father, one of the hardest-working people he knows, who instilled many of these qualities in him. Having grown up in a small town in Westchester, New York called Verplank, James has faced many challenges due to the small-minded people and limited opportunities in the town. However, James and his father didn’t allow their limiting beliefs to hold them back.
James is capable of creating art underwater, on mountains, while snowboarding, and on beaches. James plans to open art galleries in Delray Beach, Vail, and Colorado within the next five years, as well as teach at his own studios. Aside from that, he has a goal of valuing his art business at over seven figures and owning over 25 rental properties.
