"Redheads at Winyah Bay"
by Jim Killen


27th Annual S.C. Duck Stamp
First of an Artist Series
to Feature Jim Killen

December 2006

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has unveiled the 2007 South Carolina Duck Stamp print. “Redheads at Winyah Bay” is the first of four in a series from nationally acclaimed wildlife artist Jim Killen, a three-time winner of the S.C. Migratory Waterfowl Duck Stamp and Print Program competition. The S.C. Migratory Waterfowl Committee recently chose Killen to commission prints for the program for the next four years, 2007 to 2010.

Killen, who has reaped national and international awards, was also honored three times as the "International Artist of the Year” for Ducks Unlimited. The quality and distinctive style of his art has generated millions of dollars for numerous conservation groups such as Ducks Unlimited International, Pheasants Forever, Quail Unlimited and the National Wild Turkey Federation. He was also named Southeastern Wildlife Expo “Artist of the Year” in 1987. Born and raised in Minnesota, the pheasant fields and prairie potholes inspired him to strive to preserve these gifts of nature for future generations. Jim's third story studio overlooks the 160 acres he has developed into a wildlife management area...focusing on waterfowl, pheasant, wild turkey and deer. A favorite project for Jim is perpetuating the forest. Over the years, he has planted more than 30,000 trees on his property.
