Jim Kammerud

Oil painter, Jim Kammerud, is an artist and a storyteller. In this series, and during this month of LOVE, Jim celebrates the joy of being with each other!

Jim spent a career writing and directing several Disney movies and has lent his pencil to many others, like The Peanuts Movie, and Space Jam (the original and the terrible sequel). Jim lives in Saint Pete and has returned to his first love, drawing and painting, but still always telling a story. 

He can be found in many of the local figure drawing groups filling newsprint pads with charcoal drawings. He paints in oils at his St. Petersburg studio, where he lives and works in a community of artists with his wife, oil painter Janie Haskins.
