Work / Education
I have spent my life as a Canadian proudly serving my country. My education has been primarily government training courses with some college and university courses. I am presently a student of the world famous London Artist "Steve Tracy" his website is located at https://www.stevetracyart.com/ I believe the best educational experience has been life itself.
"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."
