Jim Shore grew in South Carolina where his parents gave him a love of American folk art.  His grandmother was a master quilter who taught him the patience and skill to bring intricate designs to life.  In 1991 Jim and his wife Jan took a chance and started their own company to manufacture his designs.  After growing too large to focus on his art, Jim partnered with Enesco in 2001 to create Heartwood Creek and then Disney Traditions by Jim Shore, having a lifelong love of Disney films and characters.  The unmistakable style of Jim Shore combines a vibrant color pallet with images drawn from folk art forms including quilting, rosemaling and tole painting.  Jim’s fresh interpretation of traditional design and Disney art has broad appeal and works with a variety of themes and formats.
