Jim van Geet is a professional artist living in the beautiful mountain country of North Eastern Victoria at the foothills of Mt. Buffalo, Australia.
He was born in Amsterdam, Holland and came to Australia at a young age.
Although he had a natural ability and desire for painting and drawing from an early age, his education took a different path. After completing a Diploma of Applied Science and working as a Technical Advisor to Patent Attorneys, he then undertook a Diploma of Fine Art, changed careers, became a Furniture Designer and continued to paint.
His love of art and the pursuit of excellence caused him to seek further tuition from artists such as John Borrack, Ron Crawford and the Melbourne Realist Art School.
Art is a passion for Jim, as can be seen from his evocative portraits and figurative work. He takes great delight in capturing the essence / spirit of his subjects as they inspire him to extend his art even further.
