James (aka Jim) has been working professionally in bronze for the last 22 years. After pursuing a 15 year career as a middle and high school art teacher, Jim decided to make the leap of faith and make his sideline passion for sculpting into his full time career. The last several years as a full time sculptor have been rewarding and full of adventure. His award winning work is now in public and private collections across the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Jim participates in many shows and is represented by several galleries across the western and mid west states. He lives in the rural town of Eaton Colorado, 25 miles east of Fort Collins. Jim spends much of his leisure time enjoying the outdoors and observing the animals and natural environment that are so inspirational to his work.
