An excerpt from James’ bio: 
“During my career, I have been able to engage in subject matter that is both diverse and constantly changing. My influences range from the Representational painter Rockwell Kent and Group of Seven painters such as Lawrence Harris to the groundbreaking comic book art of the 1960s; and from the wacky political/cultural paintings of Peter Saul and hard-edged industrial landscape paintings of Charles Sheeler to the mystic spiritual paintings of the Symbolist period in European art. The constantly changing stream of artists and movements in contemporary art also has inspired me and continues to influence my work to the present day.”
