James Mortimer Wills V was
born in Denver, Colorado, 1976. He received his formal art training
from Western State College.
His favorite medium is
marble and steel. James' excitement for carving comes from the
inventive process of creating and pushing the limits of weight, balance
and strength. He carves crisp fluid lines to form abstract shapes
that appeal to your curiosity, inviting you to follow the lines around
the piece and imagine what the shapes represent.
James draws his
inspiration from his life experiences. He has competed as a
professional snowboarder in the world cup circuit, climbed Mt. McKinley, is an avid
kayaker, and motorcyclist. He has traveled throughout India,
Bangladesh, Thailand, Europe, and has trekked through the Himalayas.
James draws on the beauty he has experienced in his adventures and
shares it through his art.
