Jim Collins is primarily a sculptor working in a figurative manner, best exemplified by his long running series the WATCHER. His sculpture style has been characterized by the use of silhouettes of people and animals constructed of stainless steel, aluminum and other metals. Collins was a Professor of Art at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga from 1966-1983 when he resigned that teaching position to devote full time to his career as a professional artist.
Collins has an extensive and impressive exhibition record including numerous solo shows, several major public commissions, invitational exhibitions, and competitions. Presently he concentrates mostly on private and public commissions, both in sculpture and mixed media collage. He received an A.B. degree from Marshall University in West Virginia, a M.P.H. degree from the University of Michigan, and a M.F.A. degree in sculpture from Ohio University. There is more information in the Dictionary of American Sculptors and Who’s Who in American Art.
