Welcome to Jimbo's Studio!
Photo of Jimbo playing the sax Thanks for dropping by!

My life pretty much revolves around art and music. I play saxophone, flute, piano, harmonica and percussion, and I'm currently playing with Sonoma County's radical grassroots guerilla marching band, The Hubbub Club.

When I'm not practicing, I'm usually sketching or painting. I've always been fascinated with peoples' hands and facial expressions, which is why I enjoy drawing portraits of musicians. I also like to paint in the Impressionist style.
Here are some examples of my artwork
