Tegan James is a writer, poet and visual artist.  His art includes pieces that serve to reduce discrimination & raise awareness on various topics including but not limited to the LGBTQ community; addiction/recovery; and mental health. The subject of love is a common theme in his work.

He hosted his first solo art show in Metuchen, NJ. A selection of 12 mixed media paintings on canvas and paper were on display April 15-30, 2017. The show titled ‘You Think You Know Me’ was based on his experience of coming out as transgender. Details on the show can be found here:
