This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jason Scull is a member of a family that has been ranching in Texas since the 1830s. Scull always intended to continue working the family ranch even though he had dabbled in art all his life. Then one day in 1987 he visited the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas. That same day he signed up for a sculpture workshop taught by some of the cowboy artists.

Now a full-time artist he still lives on the family ranch and works with his father every day-experiences which inspire his sculpture.

Biography from Pitzer's Fine Arts:
A 2012 elected Member of the Cowboy Artists of America, Jason Scull, born in 1958, has been sculpting professionally for over 20 years. Art education has come in the form of personal study, formal workshops and one-on-one instruction with established artists. Artists that he has studied with include Jack Swanson, Mehl Lawson, Edward Fraughton, Cynthia Rigden and Eugene Daub. His work can be found in private, museum and corporate collections through out the United States, Canada and England.

With a background in ranching, Scull’s work reflects his knowledge of cattle, horses and ranch people. His work has been shown in galleries and museums in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Of great interest is the influence of the vaquero traditions upon early and modern ranching practices. These traditions are reflected in his work in his portrayal of both historic and contemporary pieces illustrating the contributions of the Spanish rancheros and vaqueros.

Artist Statement:
"Folks seem to want to know who an artist is and how they got to where they are. I grew up in a family that farmed and ranched and has a history of doing so for nearly 180 years in Texas. It's that connection to the land and livestock that has influenced my art from the beginning. From an early age I discovered that I liked the fit of saddle over that of a tractor seat and I've tried to pursue one and avoid the other ever since.

For some, making art is second nature, it's like breathing. From the time I was old enough to hold a pencil and brush or mold a lump of clay, I've never been far away from those materials. I had the great fortune to study with some great western artists early in my career. That, coupled with constant observation, has lead me to where I am today; sculpting those things I love.

Since God made the first man, artists have been driven to create art, to copy life, to emulate our Creator. It takes the head, heart and hands that we have been given to pursue the creative process.

To quote Charlie Russell, "Talent is no credit to its owner". To have talent is a thing no one can claim as their own doing, it's what you do with it that counts. To make art it takes talent and a knowledge of your subject and materials. I've always felt that art is 10% talent and the rest is very hard but rewarding work. As an artist, ideas sometime begin as an image in your mind that ends up as a doodle on a scrap of paper, that evolves into a more complete sketch. You begin to plan, you build your armature, contact models and finally you begin to apply the clay. It's a process that can take months and sometimes years of planning.

Since I began in 1987, I've enjoyed the patronage of collectors in the USA and abroad, and the blessing of commissions from some notable companies, corporations, associations and private groups. It's been a grand adventure and those I've come to know along the way have made it rewarding and enriching beyond my wildest dreams."
