About the Artists:

 

Jim Klein was lucky enough to find visual art and music at an early age.  Both fostered his creativity, broadened his experience of the world, and taught him to say yes to things he feels passionate about even when others are saying no.  As a natural entrepreneur, the lessons he learned from the arts have helped him in business and in life by giving him the courage to go after the undiscovered.

He began his painting career in earnest at the age of 63 after many successful years as an entrepreneur in the agri-business sector. Inspired by a dying friend who asked Jim to send him a drawing each week, Jim’s work quickly evolved from simple sketches to colorful works that reflect his love of nature, music, and life.

A central theme in Jim’s life has been giving back to his community, colleagues, and friends. Jim hopes his works connects viewers with their inner selves, linking to who they are and what they feel deep inside.

Jim works in a bright studio outside of Kersey, Colorado. He is often joined by his grandchildren, who have their own creative spaces, and his dog, Shadow. His works are on display at many venues around the country.

TJ Saunders:
Thank you to my amazing friends and family who have so consistently supported me, rooted for me, and got me out of my own head when doubting myself. I’m still recovering from a fractured spine and broken hand, but I am grateful to share this story and art with you today, and hope you enjoy the show just as much as I have working on it! Más fuerte cada día!
