Hi! I’m Jim, a Fine Artist, Illustrator and Graphic Designer from Great Baddow (Chelmsford, UK).
My primary stream of work is abstract using acrylic paint on canvas, often weaving in elements of collage, drawing, and writing. My practice helps me to transcend the stresses and strains of modern life, be absolutely and utterly present in the moment, to rise above the cacophony of the world.
Much of my artistic impulse is driven by my experience with meditation and mindfulness, and an appreciation of the importance of good mental health. My work helps me to stay internally balanced by providing a safe arena for me to process my thoughts and emotions, to play in a spirit of exploration and enduring excitement without the fear of failure.
In this ephemeral existence, my mission is to express myself as authentically and fully as I can. Pulling no punches, leaving everything on the field, finding my voice in its purest form.
I’m hoping that through Ignite I can forge vital connections within the local creative community, moving myself and my practice to new heights. Drop me a line!
