Meet  Jim  Disney

 

A professional artist since 1963, James Disney's work has been shown in numerous galleries, museums and  exhibitions throughout the United States.

For over 50 years his paintings and photographs have explored various schools of artistic expression. The major body of work has focused on the mountains and landscapes of the Western United States, primarily the Colorado Rockies, Rocky Mountain National Park and the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

A native Coloradoan and avid mountaineer, his love of the mountains and wilderness began in early childhood and continues today. He has achieved over 1000 ascents to named and significant unnamed summits in the Western United States, Canada and  Mexico. His many climbs include nearly 100 ascents of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, all 128 named summits in Rocky Mountain National Park and an ascent of Denali in Alaska, North America's highest mountain.

He twice served as the Artist in Residence in Rocky Mountain National Park. He also, helped establish  and served the first two years as the Open Lands Visual Artist for Larimer County, Colorado.

In 2011 the Colorado Mountain Club used several of Jim's paintings and drawings in their book, "100 Years Up High" which celebrates the first 100 years of history of the Colorado Mountain Club. Here's a link to the CMC website with information about the book.

In 2014 Jim was comissioned by the Rocky Mountain Conservancy to create the Official poster for the Rocky Mountain National Park Centennial.

From 1993 to 2001 Jim was elected to the Board of Larimer County Commissioners. During his two terms he was known for working on establishing the Open Lands Acquisition Program, environmentally responsible land use planning,  and long range transportation planning. In 1996 he received the  Environmental Stewardship Award from Rocky Mountain National Park for his work with citizens, and local, state and federal governments to permanently ban commercial sightseeing flights over the park.
