"The 'Rembrandt of snow' has published a hefty coffee table book with a collection of nearly all of his hand-painted maps."




Timeless art for your home

Hand-painted maps require the best reproduction process available. Each illustration starts with a high resolution digital scan. It is then printed on museum quality cotton paper using the latest HDR ink-jet technology.

Legendary Ski Artist James Niehues

If you are a skier or snowboarder, there is a good chance James Niehues has been your mountain guide. Throughout his 30 year career he has worked at the  smallest hills and the most expansive resorts in North America.  He has left his mark in South America, Australia, Asia and Europe too.   And even if you have never shared a bottomless powder day with him, he has always been close by.
