My name is Jim LePage and I’m a freelance artist and designer in Bellingham, WA. After being a graphic designer for over a decade, I began to experiment with abstract painting several years ago and fell in love with it. It provides a creative escape for me. I love the very free exploration of color and texture and how the mix of those can evoke different types of feelings and ideas. I experiment with different paints, mediums and techniques and enjoy the surprises that come from seeing them interact in new ways. I usually work on paper or scrap wood from a local mill. It’s been fun to see people’s reactions to them over the past couple years and even work them into some client projects. I’ve also started to sell digital files and prints of some of the pieces as well.
