Biography

Painter, lecturer, traveler and visual arts researcher, Jim Ulrich currently makes the Village of Beiseker his home and studio. The village is located in Alberta, Canada approximately one hour North East of the City of Calgary.

Jim's inspiration and development stems from a myriad of sources and his interest in natural phenomena and extensive travel has engaged Jim in projects near and far, including, Northern Australia, Thailand and California.

His multi-layered works are primarily in acrylic on canvas and Jim's current works exploit new industrial pigments and synthetic colours that extend colour perception and experience. The intricate dialogue, rhythms and visual conversation  in his new work engage the viewer's imagination as never before.
