Jim Huntington was born in Elkhart, IN in 1941. Huntington started working in stone in the mid 1970s, when he was in New York. In 1978, he started working in granite and has continued to use granite almost exclusively. There have been occasional forays into wood as a material and as well, cast bronze and copper. In 1994, he moved from New York to Coupland, Texas where his studio, sculpture garden and foundation are now located. Major works by the sculptor are in the permanent collections of Stormking Art Center in Mountainville, N.Y., Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, N.J. and Kansai Gaidai University, in Osaka, Japan as well as many private collections.
