Enjoy yourself! Santa Cruz, California artist, Jim Winters, welcomes you. Thanks for visiting.

I'm Jim


I am a California artist living in Santa Cruz, and am part of the decorative painting team at Stancil Studios based in San Francisco. I attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, graduating summa cum laude in January 1988. My work is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art and Denison University in Granville, Ohio. 

What I do

reduction printing silkscreen in Jim Winters' studio

I make prints, drawings and paintings - mostly portraits and land/cityscapes. I first learned to screen print in high school in the early 1980's and never stopped. I have explored many types of serigraphy over the years and my favorite is the reduction screen print. Not familiar with this method of screen printing? Allow me to introduce you: Printing Divine

I am currently making paintings of Santa Cruz and vicinity. My work is available locally at Artisans Gallery, and at Perch in San Francisco.

Always inspiring
