Upon retiring after a thirty-six year career with the US Forest service, Jim and his wife, Carol moved to Crawford Colorado on the western slope.  They established ‘Saddle Mountain Studio,’  inspired by the dominating view of Saddle Mountain from his studio window. Combining his early love of oil painting and a career blessed with the opportunity for week long pack trips, time “in the saddle,” and  business conducted around campfires and the experience of some of the most spectacular western scenery imaginable.


Jim’s approach to art can be summed up in the following statement…”our way of life in the west and its integral interaction with nature is my inspiration for my paintings. I do my best to capture a particular moment that brings back my memories of people and places. Hopefully this also inspires and gives pleasure to those who see my art.”
