About The Artist and His Work:

Mont's limited edition sculptures show his reverence for nature and respect for the heroes and legends of the West. His commitment to authenticity captures the "spirit" of his subjects and beings them to life in bronze.

Mont lives with his wife Carolyn in Sandy, Utah. As a young boy, living in rural southern Utah, Mont studied art by correspondence through the Famous Artist's School of America - which at that time included Norman Rockwell on it's Board of Directors. He took art classes in high school and college as well as many private lessons. Although he graduated from Utah State University with an MBA degree in 1964 he continued studying art and painted part-time.

Upon retirement from business in 1996 he began sculpting full-time. Mont feels there is a "forth" dimension to his three dimensional art - this being the "Spirit" of each piece and the story it tells. His works reside in corporate, public and private collections throughout the United States and include: Wildlife, Western, Figurative, Children and Portrait.

You will feel the strength and courage of pioneer women in Mont's "How the West Was Really Won." You will appreciate "Next Time" if you have ever been fishing. "Call of the Wild" will awaken the wilderness spirit which is a part of each of us. You may be reminded of one of your children or grandchildren at play when you look at "Lil' Wrangler" or "Cowboy's First Kiss". "Legacy of Elk Mountain" will take you back to life in the wild and a time when the mountains were sacred and life- giving. Each of Mont's sculptures has it's own story to tell.

Mont is an Associate Member of the National Sculpture Society.
