Jim Hautman's work has been displayed in the Oval Office of the White House, the Smithsonian Institution, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, and in public and private collections throughout the world. In 1990, he became the youngest artist ever to win the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp Competition. He won again in 1995, when his mallard painting received a first ever perfect of 25. In 1991, he was commissioned by the Australian Government to paint its Federal Duck Stamp, and was named Ducks Unlimited International Artist of the Year. Jim's original artwork, his name and a likeness of his studio were used in the Academy Award winning movie "Fargo." In 1999, Jim tied his own record by winning the Federal Duck Stamp Competition with another perfect score. To date, Jim's artwork can be found on 23 conservation stamp designs. In 2003, Jim and his brothers, Robert and Joe, were commissioned by the United Nations to paint a series of 12 designs featuring endangered species from around the world.
Jim recently won the Federal Duck Stamp contest for the 2011-2012 stamp - his fourth win, and was named the Ducks Unlimited 2011 Artist of the Year.
