One of the foremost landscape and heritage artists in Canada, James Keirstead shows nostalgic and peaceful scenes of Canada in his distinctive and boldly textured paintings. Keirstead is famous for working with knives instead of brushes.

He had painted over 10,000 works for his artist life and has exhibited his paintings at many galleries in Canada and the US.
Keirstead still enjoys showing his paintings to supporters and collectors and hosts spring and fall exhibits in Kingston to show new works of art.
