Since visiting Jim’s exhibition at No Walls Gallery, Brighton back in February, I’ve been inching to interview him. His work creates impact both by being layered, painted and built up, and also when stripped back to reveal just the skeleton. Jim tell’s us more.
“I’m a portrait artist fascinated with the power of facial expression and its ability to provoke emotional response. I have recently moved to Sheffield after 7 years by the sea in Brighton. [The picture interview is].. completely different to what I usually do, found it really hard if I’m honest as they are not your every day questions but was a really nice change to just sit down and doodle. Thank you for asking me to be a part of it!”
