DUSTIN PAYNE

Dustin Payne represents the third generation of professional western sculptors in his family, so it comes as no surprise that the trade was a natural path for him.

As a child Dustin enjoyed the drawings and books of Will James and was heavily influenced by the historical nature of his father and grandfather's work. He feels fortunate that he has always been surrounded by such great artists and mentors, but more so by being brought up around horses and ranching.  His passion for the Western lifestyle and Western American history fuels his imagination to preserve the past in the art that he creates.  "The History of the American West has always been fascinating to me.  From the early settlers who shaped the West, to the Native American Culture that spanned across the country; the historical journals, stories, photographs and events are what inspire me to sculpt. To start with a simple block of clay and finish with a sculpture in bronze, depicting a historical scene, frozen in time, is the basis for my approach.  The real inspiration comes into play when creating the features in the art that evoke a feeling of wonder and curiosity."

A very personable artist, Dusty enjoys doing live demonstrations and visiting with people while he sculpts.  Dustin specializes in Western sculptures in bronze as well as monumental commissions in bronze.
