Jim's two life long passions have been making art and discovering Australian Native Animals.
"I have illustrated for many environmental publications all my life hoping to make a difference!
But it seems no matter how many passionate Australians try to reverse the situation ...
the extinctions continue"
This project was Jim's most ambitious for some time. Started during Covid lock down it is a collection of environmental artworks he hopes may cut through in a different way.
Collaboration with author Elaine Green has produced a publication 'SOS ... Save our Species' ...
which contains Jim's images and Elaine's delightful and insightful text as if spoken by each animal. (for more details see Books)
Our First Nations people must despair at our mismanagement and destructive practices.
Is it too late to turn this around and SAVE OUR SPECIES? I think we must!
