Jim Nonas / Jim Nonas Art
Hometown: Glen Rock, NJ
Jim Nonas is a high school science teacher, wrestling coach, Sunday school teacher, screenplay writer and visual artist.
While creating a Byzantine mosaic with his Sunday School class, he discovered a passion for collage art using old magazines. He created dozens of images to sell and art dealers and gallery owners started coming to him.
Using nothing but magazines, scissors, glue and stretched canvas, he creates fine art ‘paintings’ of nature, cityscapes and religious figures. He specializes in historic and iconic images and welcomes custom requests. He works out of his basement studio in Glen Rock, NJ.
Stop by at an upcoming Sugarloaf Crafts Festival and see his magazine collage art up close.
