Arizona artist Jim Prindiville made his first painting trip through the Southwest in 1968. Captivated by the rich and varied imagery of the region, he began to incorporate the drama of the Southwest into his work. With an extraordinary use of vibrant color, Prindiville recreates haunting images of Indian warrior chiefs and buffalo hunters, pueblos and mesas. His unique and lush desert paintings of cacti and petroglyphs are inspired by the rich Sonoran desert in which he lives and works. Whether working in acrylic, watercolor or graphics, he captures the mood as well as the physical highlights of his subject matter.

Prindiville studied at The Art Institute of Chicago and The American Academy of Art. He has received over 100 honors for his work, including The American Watercolor Society. He has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, Art Of The West, and was elected to Who’s Who In American Art. His work hangs in permanent collections around the world
