Jim Warren, 1949



Born in Long Beach, CA to Don and Betty Warren. Jim's brother Rick was 2 and his sister Kathy was 5. Beginnings: Started painting at age 2, like all children. Went through the usual string of career choices such as: artist, magician, artist, rock star, artist etc.
I officially decided in high school in 1967 that an artist, a "Rich and Famous" one at that, was what I was going to be! Tools: Traditional oil paint on stretched canvas which I coat with a gesso primer. Only paintbrushes are used to paint with and NO airbrush, as people have sometimes thought.Art Training: "I'm basically self taught. I learned some basics in my high school art class. At college I attended several life-drawing classes, and always studied the great masters at museums".
Philosophy of Art: "To hell with the rules...paint what you like".
