Creativity comes in threes.
Meet Sam, Jim + Sarah.
Chances are, if you’re in the construction business, you know Sam Devine. An entrepreneur from the start, Sam started his own painting company in his 20s before launching his successful boutique residential construction firm, Kinetic Design Build. His keen eye for detail, emphasis on craftsmanship, and warm demeanor make him a client favorite. One of his greatest passions remains his non-profit - EarthEd Foundation - an outdoor adventure program dedicated to reconnecting both young and old with a shared passion for the outdoors. Every year, you will find him aptly and expertely guiding teams in some of the most remote places on earth. And check out his Wanagans - handmade, handcrafted masterpieces for both the seasoned canoer and design aficianado alike.
Artist, designer, and creative, Jim’s exceptional talents span commercial and residential construction projects to solo exhibitions at the esteemed Minnesota Institiute of Art. Like his abstract art (his preferred medium is oil on canvas), his innate creativity becomes apparent upon closer study. What might seem straightforward at first quickly reveals itself to be complex and layered. Like Jim himself, his art reflects a studied contrast of life and emotion. He is not afraid to delve deep into exploring life’s greater meaning. Whether designing a modern cabin or updated kitchen, or envisioning sophisticated interiors, his thoughtful nature is evident throughout. Jim is a graduate of the Minnesota College of Art + Design where he remains both a mentor and Alumni Board Member.
