"My paintings are highly detailed and time-consuming, often taking months to complete....so I am not prolific, although I paint constantly."
Jim was born in England in 1954 and studied at Chelsea School of Art in London.
Becoming a professional artist in 1972, he initially worked as a photorealist and pop artist. However, influenced by the surrealism of Dali and Magritte, his style gradually evolved into a fusion of fantasy and realism.
Jim moved from London to Australia in 1981 and currently resides in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
