I, James C. Stewart, believe that being an artist is the truest and most healing life one can live. The power we as artists have to change lives is astounding. Drawn to this as a very shy kid, I quickly saw and felt the difference a great piece of work could have on someone, everything from letting you release and feel emotions locked away, to laughing so hard on a day you really need to. A great story in conjunction with great storytellers has the power to change lives for the better whilst also entertain.
I am committed to working on my craft and challenging myself to push my boundaries and tell great stories, in the hope that it may help to bring more shy kids out of their shell so that they can continue the process. The ability to make people laugh & cry should not be taken lightly and I commit to learning & knowing when it is time to let someone take a break from reality & be truly entertained, and when it is time to help in someone's healing processes.
I respect that none of this can be done alone and we must always be adapting to what each new age brings. I respect all those who have told their story in the past and all those who continue to tell them, including the many who have helped & continue to help me along on this journey. Everyone has a story to tell and I look forward to continuing collaborations with others in this great business of show where entertainment can have such far reaching benefits you may never realize that you changed someone's life for the better, but just knowing that it is possible makes this all worthwhile.
We can be the change someone needs in their life. Let's work to make that happen!
