James Curran

painting, printmaking, works on paper

Jim Curran has had careers as a psychologist, healthcare executive and software consultant. Before any of these, he studied at the Art Institute of Boston and the deCordova Museum with Nathan Goldstein (The Art of Responsive Drawing) who instilled a love of line and gesture.

With a busy professional career and little studio time, Jim developed a method for rapidly exploring visual ideas by combining digital photographs, fractal drawing and digital painting. He has since expanded this approach to include ink-on-plate drawing. This approach joins digital and traditional media in visual meditations on the natural world.

A member of the Boston Printmakers, Jim has exhibited online, in print and in galleries.
