About Jim Sharp

Several months after Jim’s dad passed away, in March of 2016, his daughter suggested he take up a hobby or try his hand at something he’d always wanted to do. For the past thirty-seven years he had worked in the Oil and Gas industry and was approaching retirement in the near future. After considerable thought, he decided to try his hand at painting, which was something he had always wanted to do, but had never tried.

 

It was later in June of 2016 he went to a local hobby store and bought his first art supplies. He came home with his arms loaded with large bags and he declared to his wife that he was going to paint. The stunned look on his wife’s face was priceless. So began Jim’s art journey that has impressed his colleagues, family, friends, and clients ever since.

 

His subject matter varies and ranges from western art to wildlife to pastoral scenes, to landscapes, and to contemporary. He’s attracted clients across the state, as well as the country. He continues to hone his talent by studying under the likes of Bert Seaborne, Jerry Yarnell, Mike Wimmer, Reian Williams, Lesilie Lienau and others. He retired in October 2017 and now follows his new found passion by painting and drawing daily.
