Mack James became increasingly interested in art starting in elementary school and throughout his childhood. Fascinated by the simple moving colors of Van Gogh, the emotionality of Rodin, and the complexity of Escher, he slowly formed his own style. “I was re-inspired to make art after participating in Art Therapy. I recognized that I had talent and proceeded in honing my skills. For me art is a release of feelings like joy sadness and anger.” Mack hopes to continue his passion for the arts throughout his life and he is excited and honored to have people look at his work.
