Native American Bronzeswww.ArtPal.com/gcarlson
Born 1959 in Southern California. Early on in my life, I discovered my passion for the fine arts and through my school years, I developed an interest for Native American Indians. My first accolade was an 18" x 22" silver pencil drawing of Chief Joseph, and won a first place award at a California Fair at the age of seventeen. I pursued my desire for art by attending California State Fullerton, where I earned a BA in Graphic Design and Fine Art with honors in 1985.
In 1989 I married Christine, and later had two children. In 2010 while recovering from an illness, I joined Lynn Forbes Sculpture Studio in Carlsbad, California, which is where I also work. I continue to master the art of figurative sculpture, and have proudly won numerous awards and admiration's in the art community. Currently some of my bronze sculptures are being shown in the DeSerio Gallery in Sedona, Arizona. My passion about the life and culture of the Native American Indians continues, and I enthusiastically bring to life the people and stories through my sculptures. A fun fact, I am a distant cousin to Quanah Parker, the last Comanche chief of the entire Comanche Nation from 1871-1911.
