James has found that his art is an outlet for his personal battles and the key to his serenity. He has dedicated his life to pursuing his dreams of becoming a full time artist and writer after years of working in the healthcare research industry which left him burned out and challenged in society. In his work, James incorporates recycled canvases and other items to give them a new life. A portion of the sale of his work goes to giving back to charities and organizations that support mental illness, addiction, at risk youth, CTE, diabetes and Alzheimers Research. It is his hope that the story in his art and writing will give purpose to those who have faced the struggles that he has had.
