About the artist
I am an aspiring Canadian artist who has proudly served his country like many others have. My abstract watercolour paintings are a reflection of, and expression of, personal turmoil related to past interactions and experiences. I am a student of world famous artist Steve Tracy.
"James work right away reminded me of the artistic expression of Van Gogh.
The gripping emotional extraction created by viewing his work....There is a natural narrative that emerges in his work while reading it. There are not many artist that can do this so successfully painting after painting. I believe we are witnessing the emergence of artistic genius and feel his paintings will be passionately collected."
Steve Tracy (London Ontario Canada website https://www.stevetracyart.com/ )
"James's work has an unaffected spontaneity that makes it almost childlike, drawing the viewer into a world that is at times anything but innocent. There is war, seen through the eyes of the combat soldier. There is the soldier - anonymous in uniform - seen through the eyes of the civilian. There is the everyday life of ordinary people, each with their own visible and invisible scars. There are moments of courage, despair, beauty and hope, all expressed with a raw honesty that is at once charming, unsettling and undeniably powerful."
