Jim Richardson - Palm Bay, Florida
"As a sand sculptor I am privileged to do two things I love: create art and teach."
Jim Richardson is a long time resident of Brevard County. He has lived in Palm Bay for over 40 years.
In 1981 Jim won the grand prize in the sand sculpture competition in Paradise Beach.
Years later an admirer of his sculpture on Paradise Beach invited him to sculpt sand at a special event at Disney. Before he knew it, Jim combined his career at the Brevard County Health Department with his work as a sand sculptor.
The reaction of the spectators watching him create is what delights Jim most. He loves it when his sculptures put smiles on faces.
His works always tell a story and there are always delightful little details hidden in his sculptures.
