"Jimmy has created a brilliant collection of abstract art based on the Paradise Lost verse. The pieces reflect Jimmy's musical and artistic talent, the work has a rhythm and cohesive feel of poetry and musical composition. They make you feel the light and dark elements in an almost dream like wash of colour and collage". Sammy Forway, Underdog Gallery.
