Winston Churchill is known for being the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II and helping lead the allied powers to victory. But in addition to being a statesman, Churchill was also an accomplished amateur artist, submitting his work to shows under pseudonyms.

Now, eleven of his paintings are on display at Heather James Fine Art in Jackson through September 16, and on September 11 there will be a reception for the exhibit. Churchill’s great-grandson Duncan Sandys is attending the reception. He spoke with Wyoming Public Radio's Caroline Ballard about what led Churchill to paint.
