Jim Robinson artist photographer OAS

Art biography

I am a self taught artist and photographer who has been painting and drawing from an early age and I have been taking photographs for over three decades and have been Photographer in Residence for Oxford Festival of the Arts and Cowley Road Carnival and exhibited my work at The Old Fire Station and Oxford Town Hall and some of my photographs are in the collections of the British Museum.  I am a member of Oxford Art Society (OAS). I also run monthly Creative Drawing workshops at South Oxford Community Centre in Lake Street Oxford OX1 4RP on the second Tuesday of the month 2-4pm which are open to all abilities with all materials provided. In October 2022 I am organising a Big Draw event at the centre. My work is in private collections internationally and I have exhibited across the UK and have taken part in charity art auctions for Sobell House, Greenfingers and The National Brain Appeal. All current work can be viewed above or by appointment at my home studio.
