This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is submitted by Justin Barber, son of the artist, August 2003:

Barber currently resides in Liberty, Utah.  He is an award-winning sculptor and painter whose goal is to depict the magic and history of the American West: "to tell a story and put his subjects into mood, lighting, or places that move the spirit." His bronze sculptures are designed to have action or gesture that are natural and flowing, and included among these works are ones with titles and forms that depict that western heritage and style: "Prospector", "Horse Wrangler", and "Cowboy".

His art focus also pulled him into motion pictures where he held positions as Prop Master, Actor, Art Director, Wrangler, and Award-Winning Producer. "Bill considers movie sets the ultimate three-dimensional art and his work in film a great blessing and learning experience.  He also has done a lot of documentaries and "National Geographic" specials.

Awards:
2002-First Place at Grand Champion Silver Spurs at the Winnemucca Roundup Show
2002-Silver Snaffle Bit Award.
