Wood Carver Bio - Jim RedHawk
was born in Holdenville, Oklahoma. I am a citizen of the Mvskogee (Creek) Nation.
A mixture of blood flows through my veins; Creek Indian, English, Irish and French. I am a multi-talented artist taught by the spirits, led by visions, simple but complicated. I am a man at peace with myself, my life, my spirituality, and my universe.
The subject matter of my work comes from inside my DNA and recollected visual stimulus. My work celebrates the peace and calm before industrialization spread across this great country. My paintings take me back to a time slower and more pure of nature. In my paintings you see evidence of walkers (what I like to call humans in nature). I compose freehand right on the painting surface for the pure pleasure of it. I am a regional and national award winning painter and sculptor.
I tried many things before I found my passion in life. My latest artful venture is painting in the style of the Hudson River Painters and the old European Masters. I love the darks and lights they obtain in their works. I love carving warriors in cottonwood bark as it tends to pull out a carvers creative force.
I enjoy teaching face carving at our local club and have a few carving videos to help others to learn my techniques using my template.
