Jimmy Keller Design
I am Jimmy Keller, a sculpture artist based in Western New York. My purpose is to transform spaces with my artwork.

My goal is to combine the appreciation of art and nature through my work. I'm currently creating artistic expressions in the form of wood. I am in the process of expanding into other mediums such as cement and metal. I have studied sculpture from the age of fourteen. I've been developing my own unique style and designs ever since.

My art pieces can be found everywhere from Florida to Ontario Canada. I coordinate exhibition shows all over New York and Pennsylvania. I have been featured in the Buffalo News, multiple local news stations, Buffalo Spectrum News, along with other print media. I have a strong aspiration to continue growing!

Sculptures
  • Why Purchase a Sculpture? 

  • The Artistic Process.

  • My Designs and Artwork

I've learned sculpture can transform a space indoors or out. Sculptures can easily be used to beautify a room, wall, or yard. These art pieces bring many years of joy to an environment day after day. Art brings out a feeling within oneself. It is important to purchase artwork that speaks to you. How does it make you feel? Is it a memory? Does it make you happy? Does it bring you into deep thought? Therefore, it is not truly art unless it speaks to you!

I can design the perfect piece for you. Contact me and we can get started!

The process begins by brainstorming ideas and sketching designs. This is the most significant step because it allows for many ideas to emerge. I then start planning. This means deciding what materials are needed, getting measurements, estimating cost, time, and solidifying the final design. This brings me to the end of the process of physically making the art. Finally, a one of a kind sculpture comes to life.

My sculpture work originates from fresh wood. They are hand crafted with chainsaws along with many other special tools. I am also in the process of adding other materials such as cement and metal. Please see the "New Projects" section for a more in depth look at these upcoming artworks! If you would like to commission a piece, I would love to design, customize, and personalize a piece specifically to your wants and needs. The cost of the artwork depends on the materials, size of the project, and time it takes. It can be made specifically for your price range if you have one. Contact me and lets get started!

Events and Exhibition Shows
  • What is an Exhibition Show?

  • How to Book a Show for Your Event?

The most gratifying part of my work is designing and creating the things I love. Also, being part of events and connecting with the community! Participating in shows across the region is a very vibrant experience for everyone involved. When I have a show for my artwork, many pieces are on display and available to purchase. I also do live shows that demonstrate how my artwork is formed. It's an intriguing experience for observers to watch the process in real time. This always draws a large audience.

Would you like an engaging sculpture artist at your next event? I have participated in Art Festivals, Music Festivals, Promotional Events, Community Festivals, along with many other public and private events. Each show is specifically coordinated to the atmosphere of the event. My team and I work diligently to make it perfect knowing that every detail matters. If you are interested in booking a show, please contact me. Options include: putting on a carving demonstration, putting on a show and you keeping the sculpture for personal use or auction, and/or having more artwork for others to view and purchase. We can work together to make it happen!

Keeping Your Art In Great Condition
  • The Science of Wood.

  • Where to Display Your Art?

  • How to Keep it Preserved?

Your art piece will continue to look great after many years depending on where they are displayed, how they are preserved, and understanding the science behind how wood works Understand that your sculpture is made from the best natural resource... Trees! That means that it is still a natural material from the Earth. It needs to breath just like you and I. There is still moisture in all wood. One of the natural ways of it releasing that moisture is by checking or developing small cracks. This is normal and is part of the piece. Some say that it develops character.

If your newly purchased piece is displayed outdoors, make sure the base isn't directly on the ground. The wood still needs to breath on the bottom and the moisture from the ground can harm it. Placing it on stones, pavers, or blocks will work great to keep it off the direct ground. The best place is out of direct sun and rainfall. The sun dries out the wood, but if it does see frequent sun, extra recoating may be necessary. If possible, it may be best to bring your sculpture indoors during the winter weather. If your carving is kept indoors, remember to keep it away from a heat source like a heater or fireplace so it doesn't dry out. Also make sure to not have the wood directly on the floor and place it on blocks or strips so airflow can get under it. I can also deliver the art piece for you and install it. 

Your wood sculpture is finished with a protective coating. If your carving is outdoors in the elements, it is recommended to recoat it at least once a year. Start off by cleaning off dust and dirt. This can be done just with soap and water. Once it is fully clean, brush on the preserve as it is stated in the product instructions. I recommend a high quality clear Spar Varnish which can be purchased at your local hardware store. My team and I would be happy to do this for you as well and bring your sculpture to life again! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I'm happy to help!

Current & New Projects

Nature is the driving force and inspiration behind my work. My goal is to fuse natural and modern abstract elements. I want to add live plants and greenery to the actual piece as well. By supplying the structure, I am showing that nature is the genuine art in the world. These will have a combination of materials as cement and natural wood. The planning is still in progress and will soon create the physical sculptures. If you have any questions or are interested in the final product, please feel free to contact me!

"The noblest art is that of making others happy"

-P.T. Barnum

 

My passion isn't just nature and art, it is also helping others. Since the age of nine, I have been creating fresh Christmas wreaths during the winter season. Those who wanted a wreath then gave a donation which I then handed over to local charities, awareness programs, organizations, and families in need. From the start of this endeavor, I have donated about $15,000. 

 

This upcoming season, there will be a new chapter of giving. For the 2021-2022 school year, I am currently in the process of developing a "Jimmy Keller Design" scholarship for other eager minded individuals. The scholarship funds come from a combined effort of the annual Christmas wreath project and my artwork. 

 

I believe in the power of positivity and kindness. We all have the ability within to make the world a better place!
