Domes of San Marco, by Jim Dees Forest Tree, by Jim Dees


Jim loves to create art that evokes a deeply personal response--from poetic treatments of Venice, where he studied in 2003, to romantic landscapes of Ireland and Spain, where he traveled in 2004. Whether painting portraits, flowers, animals or his acclaimed fish, he strives to convey something transcendent about the subject. His surrealistic water media collages and abstractCliffs of Moher, by Jim Dees paintings further push the envelope of both technique and message.
 
Fish Comedy, by Jim Dees Jim works in pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolor, acrylic and, most recently, oil. He is deeply indebted to his instructors Phyllis Greenway, Cheng-Khee Chee, Carole Barnes, and Skip Lawrence.
 
Jimís work has won numerous awards throughout the Hampton Roads area, and in 2006 he was honored with a one-man show at The Charles H. Taylor Arts Center in Hampton. He is an owner of Blue Skies Gallery, Down in the Reeds, by Jim Dees2007 president of the Virginia Watercolor Society, and an art instructor at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center.
