Meet Jim “Doc” Callaway
Jim was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was a dentist for 41 years, 37 of those years he was the team-dentist for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and other professional sports teams in Vegas. While maintaining his full time practice, he also dedicated time to art and his work was displayed in many galleries throughout California, Nevada and New Mexico.
Jim has 7 children and is married to Theresa Callaway, who has been a model in many of Jim’s paintings.
In 2010, Jim was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Even though Parkinson’s makes painting more difficult, Jim says “painting is his love and a requirement like air” and “that there are so many paintings to be done.”
