This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Donald John (Don) Begg (Canadian, b. 1945)

Born 1945 in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada, he studied sculpture and bronze casting in Alberta, New York and California.  Don's bronze sculptures depicting wildlife, historic figures, western scenes and the oil and gas industry have received awards and high recognition in Canada and the US.

Since 1970, Don and his wife Shirley Begg have operated Studio West Bronze Foundry & Gallery in Cochrane, Alberta.

To date, Begg has 24 outdoor public sculptures on view in Calgary alone.  He adds to that number with the unveiling of a 13-foot tribute to Colonel Macleod, founder of Fort Macleod and patriarch of Canada’s mounted police force.

8 of larger-than-life size were unveiled in 2003
9 of larger-than-life size were unveiled in 2004

An international award winning western sculptor, Don Begg has worked and studied in the realistic idiom since 1968.  Don's bronzes have been included in prestigious juried exhibitions in the U.S.A. and Canada including the C.M. Russell Annual Western Art Show & Auction, Great Falls, MT; The Collector's Society Wildlife and Western Art Show, Minneapolis, MN; Calgary Exhibition and Stampede Western Art Show, Calgary, AB; Brigham City Museum Gallery Show, Utah; Florida Society of Fine Arts Museum Show, Miami, FL.

Don Begg's bronze sculptures depicting historic figures, wildlife, western ranch scenes and the oil and gas industry appear in private, corporate and museum collections on five continents including the collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  Well known for his detailed and life-life heroic scale bronze statues.

Don also worked as a Boilermaker welder in a fabrication shop in Calgary early in his working life.
