Jim makes art! It is his reason for being. He loves teaching; he loves seeing his work contribute by enriching and educating others. He is also passionate about Australia ... its lands, it flora and its fauna. He has never been primarily motivated by needing to sell work ... but now sees his work as a way to make people REALLY look at their surroundings and appreciate all we have.

 

The continuing degrading of the status of our iconic animals to 'endangered', or 'threatened', angers Jim. So during Covid lock down he decided to channel that anger into something positive.

 

He started a new series of artwork .. of animals he cared about, trying to find a way; combining art and humour, to help US see the damage that we are doing to THEM. 

"There are so many nocturnal animals most Aussies have never seen or heard of, and we have little awareness of the damage we do to them! A collaboration with Maleny author & environmentalist, Elaine Green seeks to change this. My artwork formed the basis of an exhibition, and inspired by my crazy titles, Elaine's wonderful words are as if spoken by each animal.  We produced a great little  book; SOS- Save our Species'. It shines a light on the  destructive imbalance between us, (as interlopers) and our native fauna and flora ... hopefully we realise that WE are the problem ... before we loose more of our unique fauna.

IThe exhibition 'Save our Series', was well received and many works sold. The following works still remain and are for sale. All works are matted and framed in black at size of 65cm X 55cm
