Jim Fiola

In 1972 I was a back-to-the-land homesteader in Western Maryland. During this experience I met a professional woodworker and from that point on I knew that this was the career for me.

Two years later I started selling my work and the business was born. In the mid-1970's I started doing juried art and fine craft shows from Michigan to Boston down to Miami.

There have been 2 books published featuring my boxes and numerous awards have come my way, along with dozens of articles in newspapers and magazines. Jim + Kim + Grandchildren

In the past 30+ years I have been accepted to over 500 juried shows, some of the most prestigous in the nation. I have also been a juror for several shows over the years and in 2006 I was invited to teach a course on how to market art and fine crafts.

For over 25 years I have lived in Northwest New Jersey with my lovely wife, Kim. She has blessed me with 2 wonderful stepdaughters and 3 wonderful grandchildren who have inspired me to design boxes bearing their names.
