Jim Lewk Sculptor - Biography

Born in Troyes, France and raised in New York, his interest in art dates from pre-grammar school. After moving to Miami, he studied art at the University of Miami, Florida State University, and in several European countries.

By 1970, he was working full-time as a metal sculptor. Even though he is familiar with current trends and techniques in art, he prefers to be an outsider artist, and has developed a style that is very much his own.

?Publications that have featured his work include: Holiday Magazine, Interior Design, Directions, Southern Living and others, including numerous newspapers.

He has received over 300 awards from juried art shows and has exhibited his work in over 100 galleries and museums including:

Museum of Science Fine Art Show
Miami Art Museum
Lowe Museum
Supreme Court House
Sculptures of Florida, and others
