“Being close to his family’s ranch, as a young man he experienced first-hand the traditions of the Western way of life. Here Dustin came to know the skills of roping, riding, and working with cattle. The strength and character of the old cowboys and ranchers created inspiration for him to carry on the spirit, respect, and tradition of their way of life. Dustin began expressing his deep love for the history and culture of the American West through his own artwork. He later headed north and settled in Wyoming, enjoying the open vastness of the Northern mountains, visiting the nearby Buffalo Bill Center of the West for inspiration, and fulfilling his ambition with memorable stories of the western characters in his sculptures.
“Dustin’s work can be found in fine art galleries across the West, as well as in the permanent collections of the Pearce Museum, the Raymond James Financial Art Collection, and the Former Texas Rangers Heritage Center.
“In 2017, he earned an invitation to be inducted into the renowned Cowboy Artists of America and is planning to pay tribute to the time-honored organization’s values, moving forward in his career as one of their newest members.” -Dustin Payne Western ArtClick here for more western art.
