James Keirstead is one of Canada's foremost landscape and heritage artists. Painting with knives and oils, he has a distinctive, boldly textured, impressionistic style. His nostalgic heritage subjects and peaceful landscapes bring quiet enjoyment that have universal appeal. The angular Keirstead signature conjures up romantic images.

Keirstead’s artwork includes scenes of children, dogs and young people including a hockey series. Recently he is painting modern stylized impressionistic street scenes some call semi-abstract. These are of Paris, Brussels and Venice, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec some of his favourite places.

His art has been exhibited in nearly 140 one man shows in Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Niagara-on-the-Lake and New York city to mention a few.

Currently Keirstead is exhibiting at Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn,Ontaio, Koymans Gallery in Ottawa, at his own studio/gallery and  with Crescent Hill Gallery in Mississauga, Ontario . Keirstead paintings hang in over 1000 private collections and many corporate collections.

Some of his paintings are available in print form, and in his latest book Keirstead’s Canada. All the 23 editions of Keirstead Collector Plates are sold out.
