Jim Wordsworth Welcome Committee Watercolor Print
 
Beaufort, NC is a popular stopover port for the north and south intracoastal waterway boat traffic. Just across Beaufort’s Taylors Creek is Carrot Island, home to a small herd of outer banks ponies. These wild ponies are descendents from horses stranded on the outer banks in the 1600’s. They eke out a sparse existence from the sea grass and water, which they dig out of the sand. They are frequently seen at the water’s edge.

Jim Wordsworth

North Carolina watercolorist, Jim Wordsworth built his first sailboat when he was fourteen.  From then he was hooked!  Traveling up and down the North Carolina Outer Banks with his family and later with his wife, Mary Lib, Jim saw the changes in the coastal area from rural, duck blinds, to slick tourist attractions.
It is to these things that one is treated to a collection of coastal North Carolina art in watercolors.   One can almost hear the silent sounds of the early Outer Banks, when there were no motels and only a few cottages, none with modern facilities but most with big, gorgeous porches, and laughter that traveled with the wind. 
A self-taught artist, Jim has had one-man shows in Beaufort, Rocky Mount, Chapel Hill, Cary, Wilson, and Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
