Jim Baldwin has been creating art as long as he can remember. He received a BS degree in Advertising/Design from the University of Maryland and started his advertising career at some of the top Ad agencies in the Washington DC area. After a few years he worked his way up to Creative Director, which is when he finally realized he was born to create art and not to manage/direct it. Over the past 30 years, Jim has helped develop the Margaritaville brand as their best-selling artist as well as creating art for Disney, National Geographic, Adidas, Anheuser Busch, the NHL, Reebok and others.
Jim has trademarked and is developing his own successful brands and licenses his art to MHS. He loves being an artist and hopefully brings joy to people throughout the world. He makes his home in Maryland with his wife Jillian and two dogs. When he is not painting, he travels all over visiting one of his five kids all over the country.
