Jim Herrmann

Selected Works




James Herrmann has been creating works of art since 1965. He first began sculpting prehistoric animals for his fellow classmates while in kindergarten. Just like his own great-grandfather, he spent many hours of his childhood drawing, painting and sculpting on the small Ohio farm where he lived. As he grew older, his love of fossils and prehistory led him to the field of geology. Along with coursework in the sciences, James also enjoyed classes in the visual arts. He graduated from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in geology. 

James enjoys having many of his sculptures cast in bronze because of its permanence and ability to capture detail. An avid reader of science fiction, James likes the possibility of transforming imaginary creatures into life. He continues to discover new and exciting subjects for his bronze works. James's works showcase his lifelong interest in prehistoric creatures, his knowledge of science and his love of fantasy.
