Artist Statement

Jimmy is a self-taught artist who after a life changing experience, reclaimed his passion for art. As he reestablished himself as an artist, he continue to focus on his passion to explore and experiment with various techniques painting landscapes and abstract.

He paints landscapes and nature scenes using warm and bright acrylic colors which he constantly reminded of God’s grandeur creation.  His inspiration comes from nature, photos, memories and ideas through his travels that represent peace and tranquility. He is also influenced by many past and current Impressionist and Expressionist artists.

His abstract art allows him to use his imagination and affords him the freedom to expand his intuition to create using colors and textures on canvas. He use colors and textures to encourage individual imagination and provide his viewers with an intangible and emotional experience.

His purpose as an artist is to create images on canvas using colorful brush strokes, astounding his viewers with the brilliance of color and magnificent texture to be inspired.
