Jim is primarily a bronze sculptor although he has worked as a draftsman, machinist, steel fabricator, sign man, neon bender, foundry man, and mold maker.
Experiences as an artist started early for him learning from his father, a talented artist and draftsman. He entered his adult working life in his family's steel fabrication business in Rapid City, South Dakota; which transitioned into a fine art bronze casting foundry were he fell in love with sculpture. Jim’s talent found it's voice after he moved to southern Utah, where prominent artists and a large sign manufacturing company helped his myriad artistic skills flourish.
Jim is now using his talents to convey his love of nature. In his work balance, proportion, and subtle movement are key elements that provoke an emotional response that suggests a story as individual as the person who sees it.
Sculpting full time since 2010, Jim's sculpture 'Pelican Ahoy!' was selected for permanent placement in the Benson Sculpture Garden by the Loveland High Plains Arts Council in Loveland, Colorado and installed in July 2013. 'Great Blue' was the winner of the 2013 People's Choice Award at Sculpture in the Hills, Hill City.
