He has won a national design award and has been published numerous times in books and national magazines. Jim recently appeared on HGTV’s national program, Kitchen Trends.
Jim Dove became fascinated with architecture and design at a very early age while exploring the majestic hotels of Atlantic City’s glorious past. Ever since then design has played a major part of his journey through life. At the age of 18, Jim found himself on a plane destined to explore the Architectural treasures of Europe and Africa. While there he absorbed the grandeur and magnificence of the great pyramids of Egypt, the Blue Mosque of Istanbul, the town of Toledo, Spain, home of painter El Greco, and finally Paris and all the city of lights has to offer a young man passionate about art and life.
