This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his romantic depictions of the West, Jim Carson thoroughly researches his subject matter, which combines romantic idealism and chronicled historical events. He is dedicated to keeping alive visions of the Old west.

A New Yorker, he attended the Art Students League and illustrated western novels. He had become enamored of the West when he, at age thirteen, spent several weeks at the Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

He earned a PhD in chemistry, but his first love was art.

Biography from Altermann Galleries:
Jim Carson has been painting in both oil and acrylic for over 20 years. His work has been described by art critics as “fresh and painterly”. Jim’s work hangs in personal and corporate galleries from California to Florida.

For 31 years, Jim was the managing partner in the law firm of Chambless, Higdon and Carson, in Macon, Ga., where he primarily practiced in business, banking, and real estate law. During the last 10 years of his practice, Jim was a certified mediator. Jim thinks that the resolution of the issues in a mediation can be similar to resolving the problems in a painting. Cutting through to the essence, simplifying, and finding balance work both in painting and mediation.

Although always interested in drawing, even at an early age, Jim’s interest in painting lay dormant while law school, marriage , raising a family, and building a law practice took precedence. In 1989 Jim’s wife, Beth, gave Jim a painting course for Christmas with Marianne Dunn, and Jim has never looked back. This journey culminated in 2003, when Jim retired from law practice, moved to Saluda, N.C., and now paints full time.

In addition to Marianne Dunn, Jim has been influenced through various workshops with Ken Auster, and James Richards. Jim now gives his own workshops throughout the year in the southern United States. Jim prefers painting in “plein air”. There is a true simplicity and freshness to Jim’s paintings that distinguish them, and give them a character of their own.
