About the Artist

Artist- Jim Durow
Jim Durow has been carving birds since 1974 and has always appreciated the beauty of Nature and Birds. He started carving along side his Father and they carved about 25 different birds together.  A fascination with carving was born and the rest became history. 

Jim went on to create Wooden Feather Carving Studio in 1987.  He became known for his original designs of hand carved birds and numerous bird ornaments which he copyrighted. Jim exhibited his work in Fine Art Fairs mostly throughout Michigan and has won numerous competitions including the G.M. (General Motors) Award of Excellence. 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 which he calls '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.
