Jim Jacobs was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1955. He received his BFA degree from Jacksonville University in 1978 and his MFA in painting with a minor in wood design from East Carolina University in 1982. In 1985 he moved to Ogden to teach at Weber State University. For ten years he chaired the Department of Visual Arts at WSU. During this time the visual arts faculty made the transition from the Collett Art Building to Kimball Visual Arts Center. Jim's current work series of work explores the interrelation of two sets of structures, those that have evolved in nature and those that have been shaped by other processes. His intent is to create hybrids that draw attention via the unusual juxtapositions and cause further reflection on our role in nature. Jim has exhibited nationally and his works are in public and private collections in the US. He is represented by the Phillips Gallery in Salt Lake City.
