Welcome to the creative energy of Jim Benest. You will discover two very different outlets that he uses to capture and express his visions. While Jim's photography captures a moment in time that usually requires advanced planning and travel to accomplish, his studio paintings happen in the moment and are very intuitive. And while the images that he orchestrates with his camera are already created for him and only wait for his discovery and composition, his studio painted images deliver abstract creations through the use of canvas and arcylic paint to provide an outlet for his self discovery.

Enjoy your visit and make it a good day!


Please note, if you see an image that appeals to you, there are several purchasing options, such as: greeting cards, phone cases, pillows, tote bags & t-shirts just to name a few!

Jim Benest Fine Art is the current chapter in the artistic journey of owner Jim Benest. His art career began in 1987, when he opened Moments to Remember Photography, a wedding and portrait studio.

Over the years, Jim's love of photographing landscapes and florals led him to travel to South America, Italy and the American Southwest. From 2004 to 2009, Jim opened and managed his own gallery, The Collective Fine Art Gallery, in downtown Fort Collins, Colorado. He also does contract work for a Fort Collins based tour company www.walkingtheworld.com , which sends him on various assignments to cover their trips in the United States and abroad.

While immersed in running his own fine art gallery and representing numerous local and national artists, a new creative spark was realized. While Jim still carries his camera at all times and JB Arts will always bring to you the stunning images that he captures, Jim is turning more and more to the allure of paint as his creative outlet. As a result, you will now more often find a brush or palette knife in his hand as you would a camera. His medium is acrylic, he prefers to work in the abstract and loves to explore the use of color, mixed media and lots of texture.

Jim suggests that you stay tuned, as the journey has only just begun. www.jimbenest.com
