Jim Koplar   


Jim is a Connecticut native that enjoys seeking out the beauty in the often overlooked.  Throughout the 40 plus years of artistic pursuits in various mediums, Jim has become a master pastellist and painter with a style that is loose yet refined. Gathering his influences from the immediate world around him, he has a knack for seeing the world through what he calls the artist’s eye. It is a way of transcending the way of seeing from the critical left brain to the more spatial observation of the right brain. Once this state of mind is established, the painting evolves almost effortlessly and convincing depth and detail become a part pf his trademark style.
