Jim Lagasse

My name is Jim Lagasse and I paint in my spare time. For the most part, I am self-taught. I did take an art class in college, but the professor was not a fan of my work. I just couldn’t get the concept of abstract the way she did.

I am a route salesman for a company in Bangor. Every day the scenery and the people change with my job, and it’s easy for me to find inspiration to paint. I am lucky to have a panel of art critics at my house, but my three-year old says he likes everything. Maybe he’s not the best person to ask.

I enjoy working with oils the most because they are the most forgiving, but mostly I spend much of my time experimenting and learning new techniques. I started working with watercolors last year and I am excited that there is a whole new world of painting with this medium.
