Jim Walsh painting as J. Charles

“As a painter I am drawn to the random patterns and colors that I see and feel in our natural surroundings. I’m interested in capturing a specific moment and then reimagining it through the colors that I see as well as the colors that I want to see.

When I start a painting I have a vision of the finished piece, but that will often change along the way as the painting will take on a life of it’s own. I strive to recreate on canvas a feeling that a particular scene conjures in my mind. Each painting is an honest attempt to share that vision.”

Jim Walsh who paints as J. Charles is an artist with a career spanning over 30 years which includes such diverse media as painting, photography, and graphic design.

This dynamic artist has shown in galleries and exhibitions all over North America. His paintings are featured in numerous publications, including the Artists of British Columbia as well as in private and corporate collections such as Bristol-Meyers Squibb and the Alberta Art Foundation. Jim who grew up in New York City and is now a resident of New Westminster, British Columbia, draws his influence from the diversity of the natural world around him. Captivated by the scenery of this beautiful part of the country, his most recent works exhibit luminous red trees that capture the essence of autumns vitality. Original works can be seen at the Van Dop Gallery in New Westminster and the Artforte Gallery in historic Pioneer Square in Seattle as well as Fine Caribbean Art in Boca Raton Florida and at Milward Farrell Fine Art in Madison, WI.
