About Jim Oliver
Jim Oliver, one of Kentucky's most prominent wildlife artists whose work was in great demand during the 1980s and 90s, is resurfacing after a five-year absence from the art scene. At a time of intense interest in preserving wildlife and natural habitats, Oliver's re-emergence seems well timed and welcomed. He is more than just an artist, he is a conservationist with a love for nature reflected in the detail and beauty of his work. Spending day after day studying his subjects in a number of settings is mandatory for Oliver, clear evidence of his creative passion and quest for perfection. He not only captures the images but also the souls of the animals he paints.
