About Jim Shore
Disney Traditions – Beautiful Bibliophile is a product by Jim Shore.
Firstly, Jim Shore grew up in rural South Carolina, the son of artistic parents who instilled a love of the traditional imagery of American folk art. Moreover, his grandmother was a master quilter who taught him the skills to bring intricate designs to life. As a result, Jim drew inspiration from these roots.
“There’s an innocence, a purity in the designs found in early American art, particularly in quilts. These were masterpieces by artists driven to create. I collect quilts dating back over 150 years. It’s high art from every day, often humble surroundings.”
Initially, Jim pursued his art where and when he could. In fact, he studied engineering and received a degree in business, not art. However, he supported his young family as an engineer, honing his skills as a sculptor and painter in his spare time.
