My name is Jim Dussias, I am a visual artist, art educator, and fishing guide.
My art and videos are focused on our natural world.
In recent years, my focus through art and video has been capturing the sights and sounds of the Everglades and the wilds of southern Florida.
The last two summers I traveled to Greece (where my paternal grandfather was from). Those two trips were life changing experiences, and I have enough material in sketchbooks and on video to last me many years. Having said that, I plan on returning to Greece at least every other year for the rest of my life.

Since returning to teaching after a short hiatus I have been creating more art. I believe it's because as an art teacher I've been immersed in lesson planning, teaching, researching artists both past and present. This process has inspired new ideas for projects.

I have decided to expand my Everglades Fishing and Eco-tour operation. www.evergladesangling.org
New web-site, marketing plan, new tackle, a new kayak for clients.
I'm now offering kayak paddling tours in South Miami. These are 2-3 hours tours through mangrove lined tidal creeks that go out to Biscayne Bay. It's a fun way to spend a morning close to but far removed visually from the city.

As a patron you will have exclusive access to Patreon specific videos of my travels and outings, art tutorials, fly tying tutorials, and artworks in progress. These videos will be posted on a weekly basis.
NEW PATRONS will receive a welcome package including; a custom T-shirt, a print of a painting of their choice(from my ETSY shop: DryBrushStudio), a six pack of flies of their choice or an original miniature oil painting.

Thank you for being a fan of my work. I hope you'll join me on these ongoing adventures.
