Jim Shore

Jim Shore grew up in rural South Carolina, the son of artistic parents who instilled 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. Jim worked decades developing his craft, manufacturing his own designs, and traveling the country to sell his work. Finally, in 2001, he partnered with Enesco to create Heartwood Creek, the successful brand that brought Jim worldwide fame. Jim has received multiple awards from prestigious trade organizations including ICON HONORS Life Accomplishment Award in 2012.

Jim is a legend in the giftware industry, inspiring retailers and consumers alike with an enduring body of work based on tradition, family, and love of country. Jim’s unmistakable style combines a diverse color palette with timeless design drawn from images of American and European folk-art forms, including quilting, rosemaling, and tole painting. His fresh new interpretation of traditional motifs has international appeal and works with a variety of themes and formats, including Jim’s successful partnerships with iconic brands like Disney, Peanuts, Coca Cola, and most recently The Grinch.
