Jim Presently lives on Salt Spring Island after spending over 30-years in Hollywood working on set design for major films. Jim decided to retire in 2013 but not before reaching the pinnacle of his career when winning the Oscar for production design on ‘Lincoln’.
In Jim’s words:
‘Why Stitches Matter’ ‘What started as a fascination escalated into a craving of knowledge on what these pieces were all about, the techniques involved, when and where they were made. My main attraction has always been visual. I am fascinated by these intuitive pieces of art, the incredible colour choices intuitively arranged, trusting their gut feelings. All this put together by a commitment to hours of stitching and often to be given away to a loved one. As my collection grew and my interest deepened, I found myself developing an appreciation for extreme technical competence, simply its age, or the use of a particularly rare or old fabric.’
