Art has profoundly affected the life of Tim James for as long as he can remember. He started creating artwork realistically, until a two-year journey to Athens, Greece influenced a transformation to abstraction.
James was born in Mankato, Minnesota. He received his Master’s Degree in Experiential Education and his Bachelor of Science in Art Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato. His artwork can be found in a variety of media around Southern Minnesota including six pieces in the permanent collection at South Central College and at several public sculpture venues in the Midwest. His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions over the years, and he has been the recipient of regional awards.
Much of Tim James’ inspiration comes from being an art teacher at Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton.
Mt. Olympus is where the mountains meet the sun. This sculpture is a tribute the remarkable contributions of Greeks to the Arts.
