My philosophy of art is simple: I paint what I want; if someone else is moved by it, that's great! I derive great joy from selling my original paintings to people who truly love them!

JIm Harris ArtWorX Studio is my home studio from which I produce my "stained-glass-canvas" and "quilted-canvas" original acrylic and mixed-media paintings. I have a degree in art (oils, watercolor) from James Madison University, but my life took a different track, and for 37 years I have been an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church. In 2004 I retired from full-time ministry, but I still serve in a part-time ministry setting.

My unique "stained-glass-canvas" and "quilted-canvas" creations are colorful acrylic paintings that tend to remind the viewer of stained glass or of quilts. I tend to use flowers, still-life, landscapes and nature as the subject matter, often influenced by the beautiful scenery that exists all around me in the Shenandoah Valley, where I chose to live. I also produce coastal-themed paintings for galleries on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

I sell my original works; (but not usually prints) and I price them very reasonably in order for ordinary folks to be able to afford them. When you purchase one of my works you become the owner of an orginal, unique piece of art that no one else in the world owns, and usually for under $150.00. My work is on display at the OASIS Gallery, Harrisonburg, VA, Skyline Cafe and Art, Massanutten, VA, R.R.Smith Center Museum Gift Shop, Staunton, VA, Virginia Accents, Staunton, VA, The Boardwalk Cafe, Waynesboro, VA, Shenandoah Valley Art Center, Waynesboro, VA, EXOTIQUE Gallery, Durham, NC, Gaskins Gallery, Avon, Outer Banks, NC, and at Indian Town Gallery, Buxton, Outer Banks, NC; I also sell small reproductions of my work as greeting cards.
