This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist:

JIM STUCKENBERG, born completely deaf, is an animal lover and natural horseman. He attended the Central Institute for the Deaf in St. Louis, MO, where he learned to lip read and studied speech. He later transferred and graduated from Fresno State University with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Animal Husbandry and Art.

As a member of the Fresno State Rodeo Team, he participated in both bull riding and bronc riding, finishing third in the West Coast Bull Riding standings. Between college semesters, Jim experienced the challenge of wild mustangs while pursuing, roping and breaking these magnificent animals. Jim has also trained quarter horses and thoroughbreds professionally at a few large horse farms, and was licensed to train and run quarter horses and thoroughbreds on Pari Mutual Tracks in California. You can see from his work that Jim draws on these life experiences and "PAINTS FROM THE SEAT OF HIS PANTS."

It was during his last year at Fresno State that he made his first sculpture. Since then, he has sought to reach the artistic heights of his idol, Charles Russell. (Ironically, one of Russell's kin is the proud owner of some of Stuckenberg's paintings.)

Stuckenberg's work has been on covers and appeared in the pages of many leading western magazines. Two of his paintings were in the office of former President Ronald Reagan in Washington D.C., and he was later enlisted to create a bronze of President Reagan on horseback. An oil painting, "Stagecoach", hangs in the Executive Office of the Wells Fargo Bank in Los Angeles, CA.

His pen and ink of "Runaway Chuck Wagon" was the property of the late Indira Gandhi, former Prime Minister of India. Custom works include a bronze of Kentucky Derby Winner 'Spectacular Bid' with jockey Willie Shoemaker aboard, and a bronze of Althea, the only filly to run in the 1984 Derby.

His paintings are on display in the Glen Bow Museum in Calgary, Canada and the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His works are in the collections of the King Ranch and noted trainers Buster Welch and D. Wayne Lukas. Other collectors include Duncan Ronaldo (The Cisco Kid), Brooks Firestone, Walter Brennen, John Tracy, Fess Parker, Stan Musial and H.B. Davidson, author of "BORIENS WEST".

In 1986, Stuckenberg received the George Phippen Award for best bronze, which pitted him against 136 other artists. Since then, he has placed three other times in the competition.

George Batten, a West Coast art critic, said: "One day, Jim Stuckenberg's work will be shown and compared with all the great artists of yesterday and today. Fact is, it's already happening."
