Jim Dalziel

Jim Dalziel

The colourful world of artist Jim Dalziel is by turns quirky, surreal and sometimes a little poignant. His first solo exhibition at Doubtfire Gallery in 2013 offered a delightful glimpse into that world.

After studying at the Edinburgh College of Art between 1974 and 1978, Jim went on to teach art for 35 years. During that time, his work has built up a dedicated following and he is now a full-time painter based in Edinburgh. A professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists, his work has been shown widely in galleries around Scotland including the SSA and the Royal Scottish Academy.

Jim is a regular exhibitor at Doubtfire and enjoys a growing reputation in his native Edinburgh and beyond. His gentle, often whimsical personality is reflected in his painting which shows the ability to capture a style, a look or an expression in a few simple brushstrokes. Jim calls on his love of literature and word-play to create a highly original view of the world and its absurdities.
