                                            J Dudley Slay III
James Dudley Slay III was born in 1953 in Jackson, Mississippi.
In 1960, he moved with his family to Phoenix, Arizona, and at age
13 received private instruction in oils and acrylics. In 1967
when Slay moved to California, his passion to paint landscapes
became the catalyst that evolved his artistic dream into a lifelong pursuit.

Slay began his formal instruction in illustration at the New England School of Art
and Design in Boston, Massachusetts. He later followed this with attendance at the
Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and the Otis Arts Institute in
Los Angeles, California. He acquired personal instruction from Sergei Bongart,
who had a profound influence on his artistic direction. He has also studied under
Karl Demwolf, Frank and Margot Lennartz, Frank Serrano and Mario Mirkovich of
the California Arts Club.

His specialty is painting in the plein air tradition and in his studio. His work currently
resides in private collections nationwide and internationally.
