Jim Plaxco is a digital artist specializing in abstract art, algorithmic art, astronomical art and space art. Jim is devoted to the creation of art using computer technology which he views as the frontier of art today and for the foreseeable future. With 20 years of experience in the art of computer graphics, he has experienced first hand the many artistic advances of the digital revolution. In addition to using commercially available graphics software to creat his art, he also makes use of graphics software of his own design. His art is undertaken as both an intellectual challenge to himself and as a means of promoting those ideas and concepts to which he has a personal commitment.

Jim has judged art contests for both NASA and the National Space Society, and is a frequent lecturer on space art and digital art.

"I do not subscribe to the proposition that an artist should confine themselves to one subject and style but do subscribe to T.S. Eliot's idea that "No generation is interested in art in quite the same way as any other; each generation, like each individual, brings to the contemplation of art its own categories of appreciation, makes its own demands upon art, and has its own uses for art."
