My name is Jim Tucker, and I am a professional artist . Growing up as a kid I used to love the show Sesame Street, with Big bird and Oscar the grouch and watch it on TV all the time . I obtained BFA in design from the University of Kansas in 1988 and as a young adult my friends always called me " Tuck " and to this day, they all still do. At the age of 26 two years after graduating from the University of Kansas I was stricken down with a rare illness, called transverse myelitis, and I couldn't even walk. when I went to the mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota, the doctors told me might not be able to walk again they didn't know. Well I knew and over the next three years I battled back to be a healthy 29 year old got married, had 2 beautiful children. (That are the best artwork we can ever create FYI). but unfortunately got divorced some time later in 2005 and it was at that time I decided to paint and use my art degree. I entered my first show in Charlotte North Carolina, and actually had a lady cry She was so happy looking at my painting ,I could not believe it. I sold eight out of 10 paintings that I had made. my best friend looked at me and said Tuck" maybe you should do this for a living.... fast forward 18 years later Tuckstreet is born . After selling over 1,500 acrylic paintings and making those customers smile every day with happiness . I can now bring that same passion and happiness to my clothing designs, No longer is it just paintings.
With new all over print on apparel technology I can bring my happy vibrant paintings to my clothing! So Take your time and smile walking down the street and enjoy the attention you will receive when you wear my tuckstreet apparel :)
