Jim Stevens is a client of ours and we recently reproduced one of his original drawings. This reproduction won
the Peoples Choice Award for the 2011 Veterans Fine Art, Applied Arts, and Crafts Art Show and Competiton.
Stevens is legally blind, with only an extremely small point of vision remaining in both eyes. He creates work under
the Scrimshaw tradition, which is the art of inscribing designs or drawings on bone, antler, or fossil.
"He lost his sight as a result of combat wounds suffered while serving in the U.S. Army.
His loss of vision forced the artist to rethink his approach to the art he loves. Today
he uses a combination of visual lenses along with his sense of touch to complete each
of his works of art, and custom scrimshaw creations. Jim is the master scrimshaw and
ivory craftsman for Fenton, the international jewelry design studio based in
New York City, and he also teaches the art of scrimshaw at Trinidad State College
in Colorado for the National Rifle Association Gunsmithing School. As an author, Jim
has written three comprehensive illustrated books on the art of scrimshaw."
