Biography from Blackhawk Gallery:
Born: Cheyenne, Wyoming

Residence: Fort Collins, Colorado

Education: Bachelor of Fine Arts, C.S.U., 1974, concentration in Metalsmithing/Jewelry Design

Medium: Bronze, Wood, Welded Steel Subjects: Human & wild life forms, subjective and expressive

Awards: For bronze, jewelry and wood carvings: Two "Best of Show", three "First Place", one "Special Award", and several "Honorable Mentions"

After a hitch in the U.S. Navy, Chuck worked in the Missile Industry for a few years, then completed an apprenticeship to become a journeyman pipe fitter before deciding that his real ambition was in the field of art. He enrolled at Colorado State University where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, concentrating in Metalsmithing/Jewelry Design. For several years, he fabricated silver and gold into his original designs, but his sculptural tendencies prevailed, and his "jewelry" became architectural; he hammered, welded, and fused metal images into doors, windows, and wall hangings. From these efforts, a custom woodworking business emerged, and with it, an affinity for sculptural wood carving.

In 1989, his interest shifted to bronze sculpting. He obtained employment in an art foundry in Loveland, Colorado, and with noted wildlife sculptor, Dan Ostermiller, where he learned the technical aspects of bronze casting while being inspired by the work of innumerable artists. His work is expressed through both the human form and various wild life. It is the imagination he imparts which gives his work its unique personality. He insists upon the freedom to rearrange, to extend, shorten, exaggerate, or eliminate, in order to achieve a composition, which celebrates the form and conveys his emotions to the viewer.

In addition to special commissions by collectors, his bronze works have been shown in galleries in Aspen, Vail, Fort Collins, and Loveland, Colorado; Cheyenne, Saratoga and Wheatland, Wyoming, and in Taos, New Mexico. He has participated in the Loveland Sculpture Invitational show and sale every year since it began in 1992, as well as the Western Spirit show held annually in Cheyenne, Wyoming. His work can also be found in private collections across the U.S.
