Jim's Bio & Events

My paintings source nature for images of joy, light and harmony on my canvas. 

For many, many years, there's been nothing more satisfying for me than a walk in the woods to soothe my being. It's about connecting with nature, the feelings this brings and sensing this spirit with the trees. I've felt this since my early years. Trees always inspire me. 

As a visual artist 'feeling inspired by trees' is my go to theme. Trees share so much and all this finds expression in my paintings. And my pointillist style allows me an intimacy with trees through using dots to explore how everything is connected in the woods. I love exploring the magic of trees.

I'm self-taught and have always painted using a contemporary pointillist style. My paintings have been seen in international venues since 2003 and includes exhibiting annually for six years (2011 to 2016) at the jury-entry Salon held by the historic Societe National des Beaux-Artes at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris France.  

In painting, my mission is about images of joy light and harmony on my canvas. Trees foster this endlessly. When I wonder about what to paint, I simply ask the trees.

I left a national corporate role about 25 years ago to follow my heart and explore the joy of nature through painting.  

My studio is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
