About T.D. Kelsey

T. D. Kelsey grew up on a ranch near Bozeman, Montana.  He rodeoed for many years in rough stock events and team roping. Following that, T.D. trained and showed his own cutting horses. He worked as a commercial pilot for United Airlines until 1979 when he resigned to devote full time to his art.


His interest in, and promotion of, Texas longhorn cattle, maintenance of a wild  horse herd on his ranch, passion for Africa and its wildlife, and concern for  the conservation of wildlife worldwide have inspired many of his works.  An avid traveler, he has visited many countries on every continent except Antarctica, drawing and sculpting people and animals from all corners of the world in addition to his western subjects.  He is known for his intense, impressionistic sculptures that capture the spirit of his subjects.

Kelsey's work is found in private and public collections worldwide. He is a member emeritus of the Cowboy Artists of America and fellow member of the National Sculpture Society. He was honored with a one-man show at the Thomas Gilcrease Museum where he has work on permanent display and a one-man show at the 21 Club in New York City. T.D. has sculptures on permanent display at the Pro Rodeo Hall of Champions Museum, the C.M. Russell Museum, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Colorado Historical Museum, the Texas Interpretive Center, the Briscoe Museum, the Old Town Museum in Elk City, Oklahoma, Owensboro Museum of Fine Art, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and two museums in Spain.


He received the honor of having one of his sculptures chosen by the National Sculpture Society for the "Masterworks of American Sculpture 1875-1999" show hosted by the Fleischer Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona.


Several of his monumental pieces have been placed across the country for both private companies and public museums and zoos.


T.D. works in his studio outside Cody, Wyoming.
