Hello! I'm Jim Lutomski, a Scottish artist living and working on the Hebridean island of Islay. Like Leonardo da Vinci and others before me, my interests extend beyond paint on paper or canvas. I enjoy sculpting with soapstone or polymer clay and I just love repairing bicycles! I offer a high-quality cycle repair service and have a small fleet of bikes for hire. I'm also a Raleigh cycle dealer and have an ever-changing range of bikes in stock, with models to suit ages 8 months old to adult.
If you are on Islay, I hope you'll find time to call at my studio in the Columba Hall, Port Ellen. Whether you want to look at pictures, try a bike, commission a painting or just have a blether and a cup of tea, you'll be most welcome.
I'm running in the Edinburgh Marathon again this year, this time raising funds for Self Help Africa. As an “ME Survivor” I cherish my athletic efforts, but also want to make them count as a way of giving back something of what I have been blessed with. This wee charity helps many folk out of absolute poverty with the simplest of means. I'd be delighted if you could sponsor me and support this excellent cause.
