finest carved sculpture art
created with passion
My name is Jim Hughes. I was born and raised in central Illinois. Carving is one of my many passions. I am a multimedia artist. Working mostly in antler ,with some wood, shell, and fossil ivory as well. While I've always enjoyed art. Carving is more of a new found love. I was lured by the challenge. Everything about the art seemed full of limitations. Then you add the limits of irregular shaped material like antler. I was sold. On March 1 of 2013, I decided to make that passion a career. I quit my manufacturing job of 18 years to pursue.
