Jim Phipps

Painter

As a youth Jim loved drawing and painting, but his love for sports became a priority while playing football at Waco High School and then at TCU. It was not until many years later, on a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, that painting became the most important part of his life. He has been creating art for galleries and private collectors since 1987 and is an active member of the Oil Painters of America and Artists of Texas. Jim is an impressionistic painter using the impasto technique with strong brush strokes and rich harmonious color to capture the textures and quality of light in his paintings.
