Biography


Jim W.

It was not until many years later, on a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, that painting became a most important part of his life. That is when he met artist Dale Amburn and several other well known artists who painted there and in the Taos area. “I fell in love with painting and creating images of beauty with oil paints on canvas.'Jim has been creating art for galleries and private collectors since 1987 and is an active member of the Oil Painters of America, Artists of Texas and American Impressionists Society.
