Jim Greens bronze sculptures are forged from three complementary sides of a Western life: time in the outdoors; technical experience in industrial workshops; and, most of all, love of nature. As a young man learning his trades, Jim created artwork in his spare hours. He experimented in various forms and subject matterbut he always returned to wildlife sculpture. In 2010, sculpture took center stage in his work and creative lifethanks to Proud to be Puffin, a piece accepted in Audubon Maines The Puffin Project art show. Since then, birds and other wildlife have allowed the perfect expression of Jims desire to protect the beauty that sustains us. They also have provided an outlet for his precise technical skills in structural design and metalworking. His bronzes are found in many juried art shows, exhibitions, permanent exhibits, and private collections across the country and abroad. Jims work can be seen in Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado, and in two museums in South Dakota; it has won numerous sculpture awards, and is represented by eight respected galleries in Colorado, South Carolina, Florida, Maine, Minnesota, and South Dakota.
