Artist Profile

Jim Helms

Fallbrook, California

Jim  Helms profile picture

Fallbrook has an amazing number of highly-regarded professional people, artisans, and community service providers. There is a low-keyed yet dynamic resident, Jim Helms, who combines all of these into one. Further, these are not mere interests to him; they are passions.

Born in Long Beach and grooving up in the Palos Verdes area, Chadwick School. He went on to the University of Southern California (USC), where he graduated from Dental School in 1974. During his college years, he met and married Victoria, now his wife of over forty years.

Helms' first exposure to art occurred during his dental studies when he worked in the bookstore of the Los Angeles County Art Museum.  

In 2000, at age 53, Helms realized that sculpture was his overriding artistic interest and his avocation was launched. With his keen sense of community, Helms quickly realized that his unique art form could interest others, young and old, in creating and appreciating art. As this idea progressed, it was only natural that he began thinking of ways in which to combine his unique art forms with his humanitarian interests.

Helms can't say what his next big piece of sculpture will be. One thing is for certain, though, it will not simply be art for art's sake.
