This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Growing up on a ranch near Bozeman, Montana, T.D. Kelsey came from a family that loved animals, and this interest is expressed in his sculpture.  In October 2004, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, a group of western painters and sculptors who hold an annual exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum.  Kelsey is also a member of the National Sculpture Society.

Before pursuing his fine-art career, Kesey was a United Airlines pilot, but quit in 1979 to do full-time sculpting.  He also trains and shows cutting horses.

His work is on permanent display at Thomas Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center at Cody, Wyoming.

Several monumental commissions include the St. Louis Zoo, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center's Draper Museum of Natural History.  Kelsey was the Honored Guest Artist at the 2003 C.M. Russell Show & Auction.

His family promoted longhorn cattle and, reflecting their commitment to wildlife preservation, maintained a wild herd of horses. Today his studio gallery is on the Kelsey ranch, which is outside of Pompey's Pillar, Montana.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, V:
T.D. Kelsey grew up on a ranch near Bozeman, Montana, and married his high school sweetheart, Sid, in 1964.  He rodeoed for many years in rough stock events and team roping.  Presently, T.D. trains and shows his own cutting horses.  He worked as a commercial pilot for United Airlines until 1979 when he resigned to devote full time to his art.

Interests in promotion of Texas longhorn cattle, maintenance of a wild horse herd on their ranch, passion for Africa and its wildlife, and concern for conservation of wildlife worldwide have inspired many of his works.

Kelsey is a fellow member of the National Sculpture Society, a member of the Cowboy Artists of America, and was honored with a one-man show at the Thomas Gilcrease Museum and the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum.  One of his works was chosen for the Master Works of American Sculpture exhibit.

He has placed several monumental pieces both private and public.  These include Texas Gold, located in the historic Stock Yards area of Fort Worth, Texas; Briargate Mustangs in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Royal Challenge for Cabela's in Sidney, Nebraska; The Plainsman for the Denver Buffalo Company in Denver, Colorado; Change of Seasons and Swamp Donkey at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming; DagaBoys at the St. Louis Zoo; Swamp Donkey for Loveland, Colorado Benson Park; Free Fall for the Buffalo Bill Historical Center; and On the Wind for Colorado Historical Society in Denver, Texas Interpretive Center in Abilene, and the Owensboro Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky.
