In a statement, he expressed his deep passion for both color and painting, stating, “There is nothing more exciting to me, especially during the long winter months, than to walk into a studio filled with vibrant color. Color gives me joy. Painting gives me joy. These still-life paintings represent all of that joy.”

“We are incredibly grateful to James for his kindness and support,” expressed Kasey Bielecki, Marketing & PR Manager from Pope Memorial Humane Society. “His contribution is making a significant impact in the lives of the animals in our care at the shelter. Thanks to his generosity, the PMHS team can continue providing food, shelter, medical care to homeless pets in need.”
