Jim Felder is an artist based in Madison, Alabama. He developed his passion for painting and drawing while exploring the natural realms of north Alabama as a child. Throughout his career, he worked as an illustrator, artist, and graphic designer, co-managing design studios and founding the Upstairs Gallery in Huntsville. In recent years, his artwork has focused on preserving the disappearing landscapes he once admired. Jim’s paintings depict real, often threatened places, capturing the delicate balance between fading naturalness and disruptive forces without sentimentality or judgment.
