Artist Profile:  Jim Profitt

 

Jim is a research chemist with art in his heart.  He says, “I am most delighted when I happen on those moments when art and science intertwine, when the insights of one influence the outcome of the other.”

 

A native of the Midwest and living in Goshen for the last 30 years, he is just beginning to transition from art as an entertaining pastime to art as a path to personal enrichment.

 

Jim has always had an interest in art and some ability to draw, but it was only after moving to Michiana that he actively sought to define and develop his artistic skills.  “For anyone in this area with an interest in art, we are fortunate that there are many excellent artists willing to share their instruction and techniques.  In this way I have been influenced by David Labrum, Steve Johnson, Steve Blackburn, and Cindy Agan,  Most recently I have enjoyed being introduced to pastel techniques by Phil Monteith.”

 

With an occasional showing, an occasional sale, and a lot of encouragement he will begin to develop a particular style, to grow those aspects of the art that seem to be working.  This may take time – keep checking in with him, enjoy the story as it develops.

 

Jim will accept the challenge of capturing special moments in pastel.  Select your vacation and event photos and Jim will work out a composition for you.  Contact him at home (533-2268) or through his website, ArtMidwest.com.
