philosophy student turned full-time artist
Jim Lagasse – a self taught artist!
For the most part, I am self-taught. I did take an art class in college, but the professor was not a fan of my work. I just couldn’t get the concept of abstract the way she did. I started working with watercolors few years back and I am excited that there is a whole new world of painting with this medium.

Jim did a watercolor painting of one of the photos from my friends’ wedding. He was able to turn around the product in a relatively short period of time and the final product is better than I could have anticipated. He included the perfect level of detail. I am excited to give the gift!.
