His father built a rodeo arena, and his mother, to earn money, painted murals in dance halls and also did portraits. Inheriting her art talent, he won many school art contests. He left school his junior year and worked in Hollywood in B-rated studios where he made cartoons and movie back drops. After a year, he returned to Nevada and started selling his fine art in galleries. In 1979, he moved to Montana where he completed large bronzes of the Charlie Russell funeral procession and numerous other paintings and sculptures. Source askart.com
