Art in Wood

Jim is a Port Arthur Native. After college, he went to sea, living in 40 different countries and visiting and working in 20 more.

As a person inspired by nature, you will see him on a boat before on a sofa watching sitcoms.

Wildlife and the natural world influences most of his work (with a sense of humor tossed in for good measure). In his woodworking, he uses the natural beauty of tree species such as Tulip Wood, Bloodwood, Yellow Sage, Butternut, Purple Heart, and others to bring character and uniqueness to each project.

Any of his pieces that have paint, was painted under the skilled hand of his wife, Connie.

None of his work is mass-produced, and most are one of a kind. Jim enjoys the challenge of taking an abstract vision of a customer and turning it into a true piece of art.

He creates his work alongside his shop assistants, Mic Dundee and Waltzing Matilda. Two mini Australian Shepards who graciously let him use their dog house to create his work.

In recent years, Jim has expanded his mediums to acrylic, leather, glass, HDU foam, and some metals in addition to wood.

 Jim has called Nederland his home for the past 20 years.
