Jim Shore Santa Figurines - Heartwood Creek
Folk Art Santa figurines by Jim Shore Heartwood Creek. Initially, Jim Shore pursued his art when and where he could. Supporting his young family as an engineer, he honed his skill as a sculptor and painter in his spare time. His passion was always his art, which ultimately led to the start of his own company. Jim has painted in a variety of media including water color, and egg tempura, a technique made popular by artists Andrew Wyeth, and Bob Timberlake. Jim has also perfected hi technique in silver and gold-smithing, wood carving, stained glass, furniture making and sculpting in stone. But it's his recollection of nostalgic childhood memories and deep appreciation of handcrafted quilt patterns and textures that inspire Jim's work-of-art.
