James Coby Neill's Profile

About

I started wood carving when I was 8 years old with my dad, after taking a family vacation to Cape Cod. After college, I pursued a career in advertising for 22 years, but each Christmas I carved a Santa Claus featuring my kids and our dogs.

I love folk art because of its imperfections. It is these imperfections in art, life, or nature that make life interesting and humorous. I try to express this with my tools, the wood, and my paints to create bold colors, vivid texture, and happy feelings.
