Meet Annapolis’ Newest Artist: James Houlcroft

“Australian in America. Adult impersonator. Ostrich Enthusiast. Educator & Occasional Artist. All funds from sold works go to procuring gourmet cheeses,” reads the Instagram profile description of James Houlcroft (a.k.a. Houl) – Australian artist currently residing in Annapolis, Maryland.  I find humor in this profile description because it is so fitting for him and his personality. The thing I enjoy most about doing this series of videos and blogs is meeting the artists and getting a chance to know them better. Getting to know James was delightful, inspiring, and fun.
