Background

artist, Jim Winters, in his studio

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. 


Medium

reduction printing silkscreen in Jim Winters' studio

I make prints, drawings and paintings. I first learned to screen print in high school in the early 1980's. I have explored many types of serigraphy over the years and my current primary medium is the reduction screen print. Not familiar with this method of screen printing? Allow me to introduce you: Printing Divine
