About the Artist
Jim Tostrud is a nationally recognized wildlife artist and professional outdoorsman for Kenosha, WI. Jim created Wildlife Visions Ventures LLC and has built a great brand and reputation in the outdoor industry for all the he does. Jim was also the host of Wildlife Visions Outdoors TV Show and has been producer of the program for over 20 years.
Jim’s love and passion for the outdoors shows through in everything he does, be it his wildlife art, guiding or his video production. He has built a very successful business as a hunting and fishing guide, and, with that he has countless opportunities to witness so much of God’s Great outdoors. Jim is an accomplished photographer and videographer and can take visions from his own personal experiences in the field and bring them back to life through his art.
Jim has been creating art in the outdoors industry for over 30 years. He has won numerous awards for his art and has done work for a number of organizations such as WTU, DU, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the NWTF. Jim has helped several companies build great brands, having created iconic brand logos and packaging designs for companies in the industry. He has also worked with a number of companies in the video field as well—creating cutting edge commercials and infomercials for companies to fire up sales to their target market.
He has also made a name for himself in the outdoors garment industry and has marketed his wearable art for years. Jim has been a trend setter with creating garments that any outdoorsman wants to wear. He is the real deal, a true outdoorsman creating items for the outdoorsman from his own outdoors experiences.
Jim thanks God for all that he does and for creating a way that he can make people smile for a living—either through his art or sharing an experience in the woods or on the water with others.
