James (Jim) Hautman
Acrylic painting of a pair of mallards in flight by James (Jim) Hautman,10095 Great Plains Blvd, Chaska, MN 55318. This was Hautman's second win in the Federal Duck Stamp Contest. He also won in 1989 (1990-1991 stamp) with his design of a pair of black-bellied whistling ducks.
Hautman has developed into one of the most dynamic and talented wildlife artists today. His dedication to field research is evident in the high degree of detail he achieves in his work. Jim's brother, Bob Hautman, placed second in the same contest. Joe Hautman, Jim's older brother, was the winning artist for the 1992-1993 Stamp.
