Jim Hayes

Born and raised in California, I began study of industrial arts and their relationship to my art at the age of 12 years old. All through my school years I worked to combine the two into an art form of my own. My involvement with cars came at about the age of about 16 when my father introduced me to a friend that did body work. He began teaching me the craft of metalwork without the use of plastics and with the patience to strive for perfection. As my talent grew I started to customize these cars and also began painting my completed work. After years of private study I have developed skills in drafting, illustration, painting, welding, metal sculpture, wood working. Over the past 30 years I have designed furniture, award winning custom cars, musical instruments, movie props, Set design/fabrication, Costume design/fabrication, Puppet design/fabrication, trade show exhibits, POP displays, corporate interiors, metal sculptures and functional art pieces. For the past 11 years I have lived and worked in Shreveport, Louisiana and built a successful company along with the help of my wife Christine and many local talented artists.
