Art changes lives in big and little ways, Domino Deeds is a way to help spread that change, through the pay it forward initiative.
A Message From The Founder
I started Domino Deeds in 2009 as a way to help heal and give back to the community. I am a self-taught artist and the Founder of Domino Deeds, an organization based on the pay it forward initiative. I have donated over 9000 paintings to silent auctions for Pets for Vets, The Down Syndrome Association, Project X for Autism, Children’s homes, Battered Women’s Shelters, Children’s Hospitals, Grace Homes in India, Appian Way in Louisiana, Gospel Hill Ministry, the list goes on. Money raised from the auctions goes to fund the various charities and programs directly impacting those in need. I hope that you will join me in spreading random acts of kindness.

I learned how to paint by watching Bob Ross on PBS. He made it look easy, with his happy little accidents. Over the years my technique has improved. I invite you to brows the gallery, I hope you will enjoy my landscapes.
How It Works
Jim Fussell invites people who are recipients of his work to perform a small act of kindness for another person and to share their stories of kindness on the Domino Deeds Facebook page, in hopes that if everyone follows suit, then many lives can be touched by a mere act of kindness.

Jim is a constant contributor on many platforms, helping to shed light on issues that deal with criminal justice reform and prison issues. Here you will find all of his interviews and videos.
Who Is Jim Fussell
Jim Fussell was convicted of two counts of aggravated murder in 1978 and ordered to serve two consecutive prison terms of 20 years to life. Jim has been incarcerated for 42 years, he is 63 years old.
I see myself as a compassionate, kind, person who shows a humorous side, often poking fun at myself and my own shortcomings. This tends to put others at ease. I care about people, enjoy meeting strangers and am a loyal confidant, a true friend for life. I do not want to be lied to and I do not lie. I used to be a terrible liar back when I abused drugs/alcohol, did not like that trait so vowed to erase it from my life.
The Art Of Healing
Please accept my gratitude for taking the time to read this. I am Jim Fussell, a self taught artist. I have been involved in over nine thousand different charitable causes the past thirty of the past 42 years of my incarceration. Reaching out to help those in need is a very therapeutic step, especially for someone who caused so much damage before entering prison. It helps to being about change, empathy, self reflection and to feel others pain, despair, helplessness.
