Jim Shore’s Biography 

The enormous popularity of Jim Shore results from a lifetime of dedication, inspiration and hard work. Jim grew up in rural South Carolina, the son of artistic parents who instilled a love of American folk art. His grandmother was a master quilter who taught him the patience and skill to bring intricate designs to life. His artistry grew from these roots, a rich new design style blending Jim’s signature color palette with traditional imagery drawn from quilting and a variety of folk-art forms.

Jim worked decades developing his craft, manufacturing his own designs, and traveling the country selling his work. In 2001, he partnered with Enesco to create Heartwood Creek, the immediately successful brand that has brought Jim world-wide fame. And his artistic vision continues to grow! Jim’s unmistakable style applies to an endless variety of themes and formats, with exciting design partnerships with Disney, Peanuts, Rudolph, Grinch, Peter Rabbit, and recently Animal Planet, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
