Although James Fiorentino started painting sports celebrities to obtain their autographs, autographs are now requested of him nationwide.

James has worked with Yogi Berra, Cal Ripken Jr., Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Greg LeMond, and many contemporary athletes. His artistic ability has evolved into more than just a childhood hobby.
