This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jim Gilmore was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Colorado where he continues to live with his wife Theresa, and their two children Kaycee and John. While growing up, he developed an early love for the surrounding mountains and the wildlife that inhabit them. Combining this fascination with a lifelong interest in art, he has been successful in portraying wildlife in many ways including oil and watercolor painting, sculpture, and taxidermy. Since 1985 he has devoted full time to sculpture.

Gilmore believes that an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and animal habits are very important qualities for a wildlife artist. Jim's taxidermy experience helps him depict the animal or bird he is modeling with authenticity based on his firsthand observation. Therefore, in his sculptures he tries to combine correct anatomy and detail with a strong composition. The many days he continues to spend in the mountains researching and photographing animals adds to his knowledge of the subjects he sculpts.

The sculptor has had no formal art training but believes his experience has given him a knowledge which would be difficult to learn in a school. He is involved with the molding, casting, and applying of the patina and final finishes to his bronzes.

Biography from Blackhawk Gallery:
Jim Gilmore was born and raised on a cattle ranch in southern Colorado’s San Luis Valley where he continues to live with his wife, Theresa, and his two children Kaycee and John. While growing up he developed an early love for the surrounding mountains and the wildlife that inhabit them. Combining this fascination with a lifelong interest in art, he has been successful in portraying wildlife in many ways including oil and watercolor painting, sculpture, and taxidermy.

Since 1985 Gilmore has concentrated on bronze sculpture. He believes that an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and animal habits are very important qualities for a wildlife artist. His taxidermy experience helps him depict the animal or bird he is modeling with authenticity based on his firsthand observation. Therefore, in his sculptures he tries to combine correct anatomy and detail with a strong composition. The many days he continues to spend in the mountains researching and photographing animals adds to his knowledge of the subjects he sculpts and creates an interest in his work from naturalists and sportsmen as well as art collectors.

Gilmore has had no formal art training but believes his experience has given him a knowledge which would be difficult to learn in a school. He is involved with the molding, casting, and applying of the patina and final finishes to his bronzes.
