He is an award-winning artist, member of the Providence Art Club and a former member of the Sakonnet Artists Cooperative in Tiverton, RI. His editorial cartoons appeared in the Providence Journal from 1994-2012. Nationally his cartoons have appeared in the Washington Post National Weekly Edition, The Dallas Morning News and he has drawn for the Tribune Media Services College Press Syndicate. In 2007, Jim purchased a building in the historic district of downtown Warren, RI and spent a year converting it into an art studio and gallery. Jim focuses now on his fine art painting, primarily acrylic and watercolor. He enjoys painting animals, seascapes, landscapes, farm scenes, architecture - life around him. His style continues to reflect his cartooning foundation, often displaying his subjects in a lighthearded and off-beat way.
