Jimmy Rouse was born and raised in Baltimore. He graduated from Yale University in 1967 with a B.A. in Political Science. In 1967-68 he attended MICA where he pursued his real love which was art. Jimmy worked in various jobs to support his art habit. From 1981-1998 he owned and ran Louie’s Bookstore Cafe on Charles St. Since selling Louie’s he has worked full time as an artist.
In 2012 he was involved in founding Transit Choices, an advocacy group for better public transit in Baltimore. Now he spends his mornings working on that cause and the rest of the day painting, drawing or doing sculpture.
