Jim Beuks was born on Aug. 27, 1960, in Amsterdam. His parents were adolescents during World War II. For them, the war was very sad. Their experiences he carries with him. However, in his painting work over the years, he has managed to turn them into moments of happiness. Since childhood, his passion for painting was ignited and he developed himself in it. He found his way to transform his parents' past in his own artistic way. Later he took lessons from painter Johan Suttorp in Amsterdam. Here he learned the intricacies of painting. These sessions took him on a voyage of discovery in search of his own style.

His inspiration is captured in his experiences. He is passionate and cherishes his lines.
He hereby invites everyone to participate in his artistic journey. Still his greatest satisfaction consists in conveying pleasure and moments of surprise.

Jim also works as a senior purser for an airline which brings him into contact with different landscapes and cultures. These provide themes and colors that he incorporates into his paintings.
In addition, Amsterdam, his hometown, is the center of Dutch art and culture. The city he still lives in and loves so much!
