About Jim Foote

Jim Foote is a self taught painter who continues to learn art techniques through books and a lot of trial and error. Jim credits his artistic spark to his grandmother, who encouraged his interest and skills at a very early age.
Until the spring of 2010, Jim's medium of choice had been Acrylic paints: Traditional oil paints have now taken over that spot. Jim uses plein air studies in pastel, as well as photography and digital art, through the use of adobe Photoshop, to get ideas down for paintings and sculptures. Most of his paintings are completed in his home studio, and incorporate realistic floral's, portraits, land- and waterscapes, and, most recently, nudes. 2012, wood carving and wood sculpture was added to the web site.
Jim calls northern Vermont home where he lives with his wife Joann and granddaughter McKenna.
