Jim Durow has been fascinated with the beauty of Nature and Birds and has carved birds since 1974.  He began with the help of his father,  "We carved about 25 different birds together." 

Wooden Feather Carving Studio was created by Jim in1987He became known for his original designs of hand carved birds and numerous ornaments which he copyrighted. Prior to 2019, Jim exhibited his work in Fine Art Fairs mostly throughout Michigan.  He has won numerous competitions including the G.M. Award of Excellence and his work can be found in galleries and private collections around the world.


Jim now works exclusively on commission creating in collaboration with the customer, a unique one of a kind, custom bird carving. He calls these carvings 'Avian Artistry'. Jim's unique ability to carve blocks of wood and bring "life" into the birds he carves has created a great demand for his work. The quality, detail, realism and artistry is unsurpassed.

Jim resides in Marine City Michigan where he meticulously hand carves, textures, hand paints and mounts each bird carving which will become heirlooms for those who purchase his work.
