James Herrmann
James Herrmann has been creating works of art since 1965. He first began sculpting prehistoric animals for his fellow classmates while in kindergarten. Just like his own great-grandfather, he spent many hours of his childhood drawing, painting and sculpting on the small Ohio farm where he lived. As he grew older, his love of fossils and prehistory led him to the field of geology. Along with coursework in the sciences, James also enjoyed classes in the visual arts. He graduated from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in geology. 
James enjoys having many of his sculptures cast in bronze because of its permanence and ability to capture detail. An avid reader of science fiction, James likes the possibility of transforming imaginary creatures into life. He continues to discover new and exciting subjects for his bronze works. James's works showcase his lifelong interest in prehistoric creatures, his knowledge of science and his love of fantasy.

I'm Accepting Commissions!
A commission is a sculpture or a work of art created at the specific request of an institution or entity of some kind. I am happy to discuss any ideas you might have about commissioning a particular sculpture or sculptures. We can communicate in person, via email or text, whichever you prefer.

Items that are discussed in the process of commissioning an artwork include but are no means limited to the following:
  • the idea or concept for the artwork
  • the location for the installation of the artwork including questions like will it be a public or private installation and will it be located inside or out
  • the size of the proposed artwork
  • the budget for the artwork
  • the timeline for the artwork
If the client would like to move forward with the commissioning of an artwork, we then discuss and agree to a payment schedule. Typically payment for the commission consists of two payments, the first payment to start the sculpting of the artwork and the second when the artwork is complete. Personal check, credit card or payment through PayPal are all acceptable methods of payment.
A written contract that is agreeable to both myself as the artist and the client is signed before work is started or payment requested.
