Curt’s life with horses is the grounding and inspiration for his art. To be an artist is the greatest of gifts in his eyes, and he feels blessed to share it with others. “I thank the Lord everyday for allowing me to create art.” “It is important to me that my art be first and foremost great art. My work must be historically accurate and artistically important. Hard decisions have to be made for the statement to be both accurate and compelling. My sculptures and watercolors and oils must have all of these components. In the end my work must speak to others. Art should be about others and bringing them into the world they love and admire. To do otherwise is meaningless.” Curt’s vibrant pieces have won many significant awards. As well, his work has been featured in magazines that include Western Art Collector, Art Talk, Art of the West, Western Horseman, Cowboys & Indians and Southwest Art.
