The Botanic Gardens

at Historic Barns Park

Traverse City, MI

This treasure, located at Historic Barns Park is on the grounds of the former Traverse City State Hospital.  It is this environmental sustainable gemstone that advocates to educate the community on all things native to northern Michigan from plants to wildlife. 


What better place to display Jim’s carvings in a space that not only nurtures the soul, but is a fitting home for promoting healing of the senses! 


Jim has long believed bringing wood to life through Avian Artistry has a healing component akin to the reality of Mother Nature and can be so inspiring. 

Jim is extremely honored to partner with

The Botanic Garden and have his collection displayed in the Garden’s Gift Shop.
