Welcome to Jim DeWitt’s online art gallery. 

Jim gained world renown for his paintings of racing yachts. They reflect his many years as a sailing champion on San Francisco Bay and abroad. He is most notable for his America's Cup artwork. In 1992, Jim DeWitt was named America's number one marine artist by the America's Cup Art Gallery in San DiegoIn 2012, Jim was Artist-in-Residence at the Golden Gate Yacht Club, host of the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco. 

Jim DeWitt's paintings have a powerful contemporary feeling that captivate the viewer, drawing them in, holding their attention. 

J. Russell Jinishian, former director of the Mystic Maritime Museum Art Gallery, says,

"Jim's work is distinctive even among today's most inventive marine artists. His unique personal vision combines with the very characteristics that make him one of the nation's most successful yacht racers - tremendous vitality, thirst for action, sensitivity to balance, commitment to harmony and a highly developed sense of color, design and proportion reflecting years of dedication to the craft of painting.”

Action and drama, and Jim's zest for life in general are captured in his signature style, recognizable details surrounded by spirited and colorful abstractions. Besides racing yachts, Jim paints a wide range of other subjects including landscapes, florals, figures, and--lately--dogs!
