Creations by Dima

Original art for all


Welcome to Dima Arte.

(Dima is short for Jim and is the web site of James Sim Paterson.)

It gives me pleasure to paint and hope that you enjoy your visit. Please feel free to  pass any comments to  me  at  - I find  critical feedback extremely useful.

Original artwork is now signed "Dima JSP" while earlier works bear the  signatures "James S Paterson" or "Jim Paterson". 

I work in broad a range of mediums: Graphite, Charcoal, Pastels , Watercolours, Acrylics, Oils and  mixed media. Topics are highly variable according to moods or requests: portraits of people and or pets, places, landscapes, animal studies, abstracts and surreal! 

I enjoy the challenges of commissions and welcome the opportunity to turn  memories into lasting art treasures. Source images can be live sittings or old photographs, mobile phone cameras, as each present unique challenges.

I'm happy to discuss a range of possibilities of creating lasting memories to meet individual needs.
