About the Artist
Jim Wilson's fascination with animals has influenced many aspects of his life including his career choice. A professional wildlife artist for 25 years, Jim spends many hours seeking out and researching the subjects for his detailed pen and ink drawings.
He relies on reference material gathered from field work, museums, zoos, veterinary hospitals and rehabilitation facilities. His camera is a constant companion, providing a permanent collection of reference photos. While he finds field sketches are useful for capturing a mood and preliminary impressions, intricate pieces are always completed in a studio setting.
Jim's education includes a BSc in Wildlife Ecology, an MS in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics, and Doctoral Studies in Entomology. His interest in ecology, coupled with his education and experience in researching biological systems, has contributed greatly to his development as a wildlife artist. Much of his success can be attributed to his use of exacting detail to portray the character of his subjects while avoiding an illustrative or photographic image.
His work is included in private collections throughout North America and Europe as well as public and corporate collections.
