The "COOTES" solo show was a huge success...
Runs until Nov. 12/2016 at The Focus Gallery

I'm excited to say that the show was a complete success and was grateful to all the people who came out to see my work. This show is roughly a year and a half in the making and I feel it's some of my best work. It depicts "Cootes Paradise", a particularly interesting part of hamilton nature and it's relationship with the urban city around it. It runs until Nov 12/2016. If your up on James Street, dont forget to stop by at the gallery. Just tell em James sent you!

Recent Work. "Cootes #18"

I just finished this painting as part of my Cootes series. It's a painting of one of my favorite spots in Hamilton... Princess Point. It's fall and wet, and I find that wet plants create deep tones and colours.
