About the Artist

Jim Fitzpatrick
Jim Fitzpatrick

American multi-media artist Jim Fitzpatrick exhibits drawings and photographs that are rich in history, often depicting a still life sense in how he captures both animal and human subjects. His work is based on his memories, and metaphorical representations of famous figures in American culture. Fitzpatrick uses these moments to inspire concepts of inner peace and unity.

While he consistently selects bold, saturated colors, he makes sure they don’t overpower the people. Digitally altering some of his photographs and times evokes the notion of an abstract interpretation of his work. Fitzpatrick keeps alive the spectrum of emotions in life focusing on laughter, joy, and the lessons available when learning from the past.

“I primarily draw realistic portraits and do photography.  The message I try to convey with my works is to show the beauty, uniqueness, and the positive the world still has to offer.  I was blessed to live the dream of mine and become a professional roller derby skater, traveling the world, and being on TV.  Unfortunately, injuries ended my dream, but eventually, after recovering, I became a firefighter.  Injuries ended that career as well.  Sadly nothing lasts forever, but while seeking treatments and things to become more mobile and cope with chronic pain, I got back into drawing and photography.  I want to take advantage of my opportunities and do something positive to inspire others suffering from chronic pain or other obstacles in their life.”
