Born in Troyes, France and raised in New York, Jim Lewk's interest in art dates from pre-grammar school. After moving to Miami, he studied art at the University of Miami, Florida State University, and in several European countries.

By 1970, he was working full-time as a metal sculptor. Even though he is familiar with current trends and techniques in art, he prefers to be an outsider artist, and has developed a style that is very much his own. His work has been featured in Southern Living and other prominent publications.
