Jim Keefer

Jim started carving at age 13, to enhance his rig of decoys that he used while duck hunting on the upper Barnegat Bay of New Jersey. He studied Art at Florida Southern College and received his B.A. in Fine Arts from Monmouth College in New Jersey. Jim has been carving for over forty years but only full time since 1980. His popularity grew rapidly upon opening his shop in Woodstock, Vermont and now his list of collectors includes people from all over the world. He has shown his work in most decoy shows, and many exclusive art galleries and leading decoy auctions, but now spends most of his time just filling orders.
Jim carves “hollow smoothies” and an eider, being his favorite waterfowl, is carved as a baby and placed in each of these carvings. He does others as well, carving full or oversized birds in cedar.
