Welcome to my portrayal of the ‘Old West’ – in bronze sculpture. As a sculptor, I find western art is a doorway to a wealth of knowledge and feeling. Sculpting artwork is a lifetime of study that never ends. Cowboy art encompasses the whole panorama of the human experience. I remember fondly the hours spent as a youth reading of renegade horses, cowboys, outlaws, ferocity, passion, cunning, honor, loneliness, courage and freedom. These words worked their way into my soul and now find expression as I sculpt in clay. The west was about men and women who had courage to work for something bigger than themselves. I find great pleasure in doing these people justice by creating a fair portrayal of their characters. As a sculpting artist, my desire is to use western sculpture as a vehicle to inspire mankind to see the beauty of life and remember our ‘Old West’ heritage.
