BIO Jim is an award winning artist recently featured in Wabi Sabi: Painting with Cold Wax by Serena Barton (2015) and in the definitive resource Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin (2017). He maintains a working and teaching studio in the historic Northrup King Building in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Here he shares his process and his approach to achieving authentic abstraction through his class Process, Purpose and Passion: Oil and Cold Wax Abstract Painting. In September 2016 he enjoyed the opportunity of sharing his workshop with an international group of artists at Loft 11 in Paris, France. Jim grew up in the Minneapolis, Chicago, Atlanta and Detroit areas which instilled in him a global awareness, the thrill of new experiences and a passion for travel. These influences continue to inform his art as he explores our world culling inspiration from both urban and exotic places ranging from the UK, Ireland and France to Vietnam, Mexico and Peru.
