From the Rat Race, to a Pet's Face...


Jim was blessed with a lay off as a corporate executive for a major health care organization while in his early 40s. This led to an opportunity for free ‘reeducation’ from the state of Alabama. In an effort to NEVER wear another suit and tie again, he selected graphic design as his new field of study.  The curriculum included a few traditional art classes and it is here he discovered, much to his surprise, a latent talent!

Jim is a natural-born leader. However, as a firm believer in a Divine plan, he goes where he is led.  Born and raised in Altoona, Pennsylvania, he got a cosmic call to move to Mobile, AL at the age of 19. He’s been known to say it was an easy decision, because, ”ya don’t have to shovel humidity.” After earning his  commercial art degree at age 46, Jim decided that the only dumbass he ever wanted to work for was himself.  A friend mentioned he should become a Jackson Square artist and after 11 years of commuting, he is now a proud New Orleans resident.


These whimsical animal portraits are a fairly recent development in an ever-evolving Jim. The ability to capture the personality; the actual essence of his subjects, is a gift that he never takes for granted. He thrives on the creative process and is grateful he was introduced to the artist hiding within.
