BIO

Jim Keller

After a 42 year career as a civil Engineer, Keller has enjoyed the creative freedom of working as a full time artist.  For 22 years Keller's artistic efforts were limited to creating sculptural objects on a lathe.  In 2012 Keller began casting in bronze, making molds from wood sculptural objects he created.  Keller is now working in wood, foam, metal, resin and clay to create original sculptures.  Keller's skills in working in a multitude of materials gives him a great deal of flexibitlty in his creative efforts.  Placing work in permanent public collections and pursuing monument scale projects has given Keller a wonderful sense of fulfillment.
