This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography, submitted August 2004, is from the artist.

Born in 1950 in the Southeast Texas oil town of Beaumont, David Everett showed an interest in the visual arts and music from his earliest years. This involvement in the arts would be complemented by his interest in the natural world when, along with his older brother John, he set out to learn all he could about the complex landscape and seascape of the upper coast of Texas.  This region contains a mixture of the dense pine and oak forests of deep East Texas, known as the Big Thicket, with their bayous, rivers and swamps abutting the spare, open marshes and bays that flow into the Gulf of Mexico along the coastal plain of the state. Animal and plant life is abundant here and the entire experience became a virtual Cornucopia of visual influences that continue to effect his artwork well into adulthood.

Everett pursued his artistic interests, always centered around sculpture and drawing, through his years of public schooling and for a period also did film work involving 3D animation*.  By 1968 he began classes at Lamar University in Beaumont, but his interest in the study of the human figure in sculpture and drawing led his professor, Jerry Newman, to suggest a transfer to the University of Texas at Austin, Texas.  He moved to the central Texas city of Austin in 1970 where he began studies with Charles Umlauf, a well known sculptor in the region.  Everett finished work on his BFA in 1972 and continued graduate studies in sculpture at the school, completing his MFA in 1975.  It was during this period of time of undergraduate and graduate work that he was exposed to woodcarving* and felt an affinity for the process of direct carving*, a technique he would pursue as a working artist.

After a 4-year stint teaching sculpture at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, Everett augmented his studio woodcarving with a period of work assisting an Austin based woodworker named Mark Landers, a well known custom furniture maker in the Central Texas area.  This time spent in the Landers shop would become another period of schooling for Everett.  Landers is a traditional woodworker, milling his hardwoods from rough-cut stock and designing and building furniture pieces in a hands-on fashion.  He coached Everett in these traditional techniques and consequently became a strong influence on the sculptor's technical abilities.

Everett left employment at the wood shop in 1983 after a period of about 2 years to return to full time work in his sculpture studio in Austin, Texas where he continues to produce his sculptures, drawings and woodcuts*.

Everett's allegorical* artwork continues to explore the use of both human and animal forms, exploring the natural history of a personal world.  His totemic sculptures are first carved and constructed with articulated joints and are then finished in artist's oil paints using a traditional glazing technique.
