Jack W. Muir was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. His interest in art began at an early age with a visit to the C.M. Russell Museum. After receiving a degree in Fine Art from Montana State University, Jack went on to cofound Kalispell Art Casting in 1978. Kalispell Art Casting is currently one of the largest art casting foundries in the west, empoying over 45 people.
Jack's foundry association with many well known and respected artists has had a wide and varied influence on his own art work. Western, wildlife and equestrian are themes that prevail in Jack's work. However, subject matter is secondary to his main interest which is to focus on strong sculptural elements. Muir's sculptures exude both emotion and interest through his use of design, composition and texture.
Jack's sculptures can be found in many private collections and are available in fine art galleries across the country.
Now semi retired, Jack spends his time between Montana, where he sculpts and Mexico, where he and his wife Sydney Anne sail on their 40' sailboat, Tambourine.
