AS HE HAD ALWAYS COLLECTED LOTS OF CORNISH NAIVE ART OVER THE YEARS , AS HE WAS WAS ALWAYS

PASSIONATE ABOUT NAIVE ART HERE IN CORNWALL, JIM HAD COLLECTED WORKS BY FRED YATES ALSO JOAN GILLGREST AND LINDA WIER AND MADGE GILL,
SO I THOUGHT THATS IT I WILL BE A NAIVE ARTIST,

THEN OPENED HIS OWN ART GALLERY WITH JUST HIS OWN WORK AND CONTINUED TO DO THIS FOR THE NEXT 6 SUMMERS VERY SUCCESSFULLY



THE GALLERY IS STILL OPEN TODAY WITH HIS DAUGHTERS WORKS ARTIST MELANIE MC DONALD WHYNOT VISIT HER VISIT HER WEB

JIM HAD DECIDED NOT TO GO TO ANY ART SCHOOLS OR LESSONS AS HE FEELS STRONGLY THAT NAIVE ART IS FROM THE HEART NOT FROM ANY TEACHER

WELL NOW AGED 80 HE FEELS VERY HAPPY WITH HIS WORK AND STYLE AND PAINTS IN THICK OILS IN A STYLE SIMILAR TO
FRED YATES AND JOAN GILLCREST

SO WHY NOT BRIGHTEN UP YOUR WALL WITH AN ORIGINAL ART WORK THAT WILL ALSO GO UP IN VALUE AS TIME GOES BY
