James Morgan seeks to achieve a balance between the subject and environment. This harmony is further aided by the play of light, shadow, and subtle color changes. He is intrigued by the patterns and shapes found in nature, and concentrates on the effects of these elements, the array of colors, and nature's ever-changing moods. His work is in the permanent collection at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. He was named Master Wildlife Artist at Birds in Art in 2008. Other awards include the Red Smith Award at the National Museum of Wildlife Art and the Robert M. Lougheed Memorial Award at the National Academy of Western Art. Exhibitions include Western Visions, Prix de West, Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition, and many others.
