Based in Santa Cruz, California,  Jim Denevan creates temporary drawings on sand, earth, and ice that are eventually erased by waves and weather. These drawings range in scale from smaller beach compositions to large scale land works the size of a city.

Jim’s artwork is performed primarily outside in California but also many other locations around the world. Documentation of Jim’s work has been exhibited at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, MoMA/PS1, The Museum of Arts and Design, Parrish Art Museum, Peabody Essex Museum and Laguna Art Museum.
