Take a look at Annalee’s creations and there’s something special right in front of you.

The magic of Jim’s design style is that it can be applied to a huge variety of themes and formats, creating a charming and innovative American country décor statement for the home. “My work is not a single statement, but a lot of elements mixed together.

It’s just fun to look at—American Folk-Art.”
