Jim Burley, Mesquite Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement I am a Christian artist and musician. I have worked in the sewing industry for over 15 years as a mechanic and now I work in construction. I know my art is truly inspired by God. The images come to me quickly and I have to draw or it leaves me, unless I can make a quick note. However, the note only gives me slight detail and I know I missed out on what God was telling me.
