Jim Willis, Walla Walla, Washigton Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I consider myself a photographic artist. Since my recent retirement I have devoted as much time as possible to photography.
In Walla Walla I market at the Carnegie Art Center, the Walla Walla Airport Gift Shop, Inland Octapus. I use Epson printers and inks on a wide variety of media. Signed prints may be ordered direclty from me.
I have been asked to make my images more available. You may purchase my prints and cards direclty from Imagekind where I am also known as jfranklinwillis. If you view an image on Flickr that you would like to purchase and you do not see it on Imagekind please emial me and I will add the image at Imagekind. Thank you for your interest and your patience.

"Of Roses and Poets" is my first book. It has been described as a delightful collection of vintage poems going back to 1500 and my protraits of roses. Autographed copies may be purchased from me or it may be purchased directly from Xlibris via the internet.
