Welcome to the worlds of James Hagerty. He is inspired by all things creative, expressing himself in a variety of media to achieve intimate communication with both a gay and straight audience. His works are inspired by personal experience, having grown up in the Coachella Valley (the setting for the novel, “Nut Grass”). He delves into the dark side, but finds his way back for a final triumph in the light.

From painting to sculpting to the written word, James’ unique vision serves as both a release and connecting link with his fellow man. His considerable output is both grittily physical and highly spiritual. He is a multi-published author and has shown his paintings and sculptures in many exhibitions, as well as private collections.
