Jim Jenkins began teaching sculpture at CSUF in 1981. He received his MFA from Syracuse University (New York) and his BFA from Murray Sate University (Kentucky).

Recent professional activities have included a 1999 solo exhibition at San Diego Mesa College entitled "Shifts", along with group exhibitions in San Pedro, Rancho Palos Verdes, and Santa Rosa, California. The December 1999 issue of Sculpture magazine featured an article he authored entitled Humanizing The Machine. In 1998 he curated a major exhibition of moving sculpture for Los Angeles' Museum of Neon Art entitled humanchine: Kinetic Response To Life With Technology. In 1997 he received a public commission to create a monumental kinetic sculpture for the Southwest Aviation Complex at the Van Nuys Airport located just north of Los Angeles. The completed work, entitled Alaris, stands 17' tall with a 20' wingspan. The wings are motorized to slowly flap up and down.
