North Carolina watercolorist, Jim Wordsworth built his first boat when he was fourteen. From then on 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 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 over the wind.
A self-taught artist, Jim has had one-man shows in Beaufort, Rocky Mount, Greenville, Wilson, Chapel Hill, and Kill Devil Hills. He currently has 62 limited editions sold through dealers and galleries in North Carolina.
