Jim Robinson’s art biography

Art biography

I am a self taught Oxfordshire artist who has been painting and drawing from an early age. I work in a studio at home in a village just outside Oxford and work to commission  in mixed media, acrylic and oils. I exhibit locally during Artweeks and have been part of group exhibitions locally as well as further afield such as Broadway Arts Festival in Gloucestershire, the Strand Gallery in London and the Royal West Academy (RWA) in Bristol. I am a member of Oxfordshire Artweeks and the UK Coloured Pencil Society. Most recently I have been involved with South Oxford Community Arts (SOCA) and will be exhibiting there during Artweeks and doing a workshop on using watercolour pencils.

Exhibitions and workshops:

The first group exhibition this year will be Life Atelier at West Oxon Arts in Bampton exploring the art of life drawings from 4-26 March 2017. I will be showing small scale life drawings including Field of Dreams. See:

I will also be exhibiting in a group exhibition at South Oxford Community Arts (SOCA), Lake Street, Oxford as part of Artweeks on the weekends of 20-21 and 27-28 May 2017. One painting on show will be Allotment First Frost done in coloured pencil and gouache. I will also be doing a workshop exploring the use of watercolour pencil on Friday 26th May 6-9pm at SOCA.

My work is in private collections worldwide. I use two well established framers and a packaging service that is used by professional artists delivering work safely door to door.
