"I've always had a pencil in my hand, it seems."

My earliest chilhood memories involve being very happy and content while drawing and sketching.
Growing up, my art was recognised with various awards through grade shool, although I have no formal art training. (other than a degree in Commercial art from the Nj Vocational/ Technical School system, and some odd courses at a community college) I dropped away from art in my teen years, worked briefly in the Art Dept. of the Asbury Park Press in my eary 20's, only to return to the business of art in my late 20's. Working in the creative finish / interior decoration business led me to a commision, by a client, for a piece of my fine art, and once restarted in paintng, I've not stopped since that time.

I've never painted for the sole sake of sale and mostly painted for release and creativity. My art is deeply personal and yet deals with universally recognised emotions, feelings, human qualities, and frailties. My art is often thought provoking, involving the viewer, provoking, and evoking a response. It ranges from emotional abstraction to Pop Art attraction. It more matches your mind, than your couch!
Diverse artsits such as DaVinci, Michelangelo, O'keefe, Kahlo, Dali, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, and Roosevelt's own Jacob Landau inspired me.

I enjoy working mostly with  acrylics on canvas, occassionally mixing media, and also enjoy the challenges of sculpture, graphics, stencils, and prints. I have been lucky to have had a great deal of interest in my work, many admirers, benefactors, and have quite a number of works in privately held collections.

jimdesigns is a fine arts and custom finish and interior decorating business established in 1994 which allows me to create artistic wall finishes using graphics, fine art, lighting, and select furnishings to compliment clients' requests.

In 1998, I moved to Roosevelt, Nj and within a few years became deeply involved in the Roosevel Arts Project. I have since then become a member of the council and look foward to celebrating their 20th Anniversary in 2007.

Last year I opened the Eleanor gallery in the town of Roosevelt, which has so far been received
with critical success, praise, and supoort from the artistic and surrounding community.
I have most recently been involved in the Quark Project in Princeton, Nj, having been commisioned  to provide a mural.
