Jim Greenwood was born and raised on the Cumberland Plateau and came of age in a close knit family that valued resourcefulness and enterprise. From his earliest days in the hills, alongside his mother, father and siblings, Greenwood grew in his understanding of the earth’s products and its processes. From a viewpoint informed by both necessity and curiosity, he learned to make useful objects from the abundant raw materials that grew along the ridge that was his mountain home.

Artist Statement
“Passion – That is what my creative side is about, not to mention my love for all types of wood. When the two collide, true magic takes place. My work fills me with a sense of accomplishment that is unexplainable as I see each piece taking on its own natural beauty. I am a very blessed artist, and it makes me happy when others share and seek out my art form.”
