Mike McFarland

Devoted to a cowboy lifestyle, McFarland started sculpting while recovering from an accident while roping horses. As he explains: “I have devoted my life to cowboyin’ and sharing with folks my love for that life. Regardless of a person’s background, I believe all Americans have a little cowboy spirit in them.  The independence, the courage and the guts to do a job under tough conditions.  I think this is the reason why people like western art.”
