Jim Shore 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 brand that brought Jim world-wide fame. Jim’s unmistakable style applies to an endless variety of themes and formats, including his new jewelry collection and exciting design partnerships with Disney, The Wizard of Oz, and now Peanuts.
