Jim lives and carves in the town of Mono in beautiful Dufferin County, about 1 hour north west of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has had a life long interest in art but has been carving since 2003. Once a teacher by profession, Jim has taken up this new passion full time.
Living close to the Bruce Trail and the breath-taking Hockley Valley, Jim is inspired by subjects found in nature and strives to depict them as realistically as possible. Interesting faces are fun to carve and he especially enjoys the challenge of commissioned works where the client picks the subject!
