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 most recently at the Royal West Academy in Bristol. I am a member of Oxfordshire Artweeks and the UK Coloured Pencil Society.

2016 was a year of firsts with a painting sold for Greenfingers charity, paintings in the Paint Pots and Coffee Cups book project of Oxford Cafes and paintings in an Oxford gallery alongside those of well-established Oxfordshire artists. My work is framed by two highly respected framers and packaged and sent by a reliable firm in Oxford who deal with artists worldwide.
