James Castle (1899 - 1977) was born deaf in the sparsely populated mountain community of Garden Valley, Idaho. At approximately age six, he began drawing on found paper with ink he made from soot he scraped from the wood burning stove, and by spitting in it and drawing with a sharpened stick — a practice he continued throughout his lifetime. Castle gained recognition as an artist in the early 1950s when his nephew Bob Beach showed his uncle’s drawings to his instructors at a Portland, Oregon art school. Castle’s work has since then been included in exhibitions throughout the Northwest in the U.S. His work is now represented in museum collections throughout the U.S.
