About The Artist

Jim Chute grew up in a small Maine town and attended rural schools where there was no formal art education. Consequently he believed that people who could draw had some special secret talent. What a fool he was. Later on he went to college in another state and learned something. Then he got married to Sara Hayes and they had two children, Ethan and Bethany. He worked in the public sector for 30 years: proof that he had not learned much. Realizing at last that his children had artistic talent and that they could not have gotten all of it from their mother, he began to make "art". He also likes all kinds of boats, particularly kayaks, and most kinds of music, except opera.
