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.
