Jim’s artwork focuses on dance (ballet in particular but also powwow) or nature. Most of Jim’s enjoyment and personal commitment is in the planning and development of the artwork prior to the actual presentation. The preparation of the artwork itself is fraught with personal moments of introspection and research; the labor of love through practice; emphasis on editing and formulating composition; and finally dedication to producing the artwork itself.
Art has been Jim’s passion for over 30 years and sharing his art with others is his joy. Jim loves people’s faces and finds that portraying them through portraiture and figurative work is a very gratifying way to capture the moment and convey his vision of the personification of beauty to others.
