James Picard is absolutely in love with art. Keenly aware that every minute counts, James works feverishly, seizing every opportunity to create the vivid and striking images his mind conjures up.
In “James Picard: Off the Canvas”, a documentary film about the artist, Picard describes how, as a young boy, he often drew on the backs of cupboard doors or under the sheets by flashlight in order to hide his compulsion for creating as he grew up with little support for his talent. Despite that fact, he knew from a young age that art would be his path. At the age of eighteen, his tenacity and talents drew him to prestigious art schools such as Sheridan College and the Ontario College of Art where he began formal studies to develop his raw artistic talent.
