James Jacob Pierri    Artist     Creator
James Jacob Pierri is a self taught artist who defines his artistic education as “ Tutored in art at the School Of The Muses”. Remaining innocent or ignorant to much of the art worlds titles or structure, he feels this keeps his spirit free and doesn’t interfere with the creative process. Though the work here on this site focus’s on Xanadu- Interior Art Design Sculptures,  Painting is also a favored form of expression. James is also an accomplished classical and pop musician, published Astrologer/ writer and produces live performance pieces. Each piece of art he creates is something of a spiritual experience and his work has been called “ Artistic representations of meditation” and
“ spiritually sacred and  Iconic”.
Taking a brief hiatus from the art world temporarily to pursue other fascinations, the Muses have welcomed Him back with loving arms and Blessings with re-inspired fervor ignited with The Xanadu Collection.  James is curently working towards his Masters degree in the  new fascinating anthropoligic field of Pagan Studies & Research.

         Xanadu - The Inspiration behind the collection
The names or titles of each piece of this collection refer to the Isis & Osiris Myth of Ancient Egypt.
Its a very romantic story of eternal love that is lost, found and restored! Also in part because of the Mummy-esque inspired look, feel and texture of each piece. Xanadu it’s self is the special place in which all creation and creativity comes from and returns, so it seems a fitting name for a collection that has eternal potential. “Today there is higher demand on simple items competeing with technology, even art and interior design are expected to do so much more than  purely be. This Collection is a statement to our times and by tying in tradition, functionality and beauty.”- James Jacob Pierri.
 Theres more to the story of course, but you’d have to ask James Jacob Pierri the artist, he loves telling it.
