A native of Dundee, Jim is a highly respected professional artist with over 40 years’ experience behind him.
Starting out as an illustrator on children’s comics and women’s magazines he became the senior illustrator, of a successful art department of a large national publishing company, and latterly the Commissioning Illustrations Editor for one of Scotland’s well-loved and oldest magazines.
For the past twenty-five years, Jim has focused his paintings on the Scottish landscape and his work is most recognizable for the way he beautifully captures the atmosphere and light of our mountains and forests. He works mostly in watercolour now and enjoys the spontaneity and unpredictability it offers. However, Jim is comfortable with other media including pen and ink. He is also highly experienced in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Painter work.
Jim exhibits regularly and his paintings can be seen in galleries around the country. His work is much sought after at home and abroad including Ireland, Spain, New Zealand, the USA and China.
Jim lives in Monifieth, Scotland
