Bryce grew up surrounded by nature. His deep love for the world around him and his desire to create art have always been closely linked. When he entered college, he studied biology and the natural sciences followed by graduate studies in ecology. Eventually, his passion for art became undeniable and he focused full time on an art career.

At first, Bryce took any sculpting job that he could find including sculpting for a variety of architectural and hardware companies. Following his innate curiosity, Bryce learned the science and industrial mechanics of bronze casting and metallurgy. He immersed himself in understanding the foundry process and in turn mastered each step.

These early years of intensive learning gave him the skills to unleash his creativity. Bryce traveled the country attending shows and exhibiting his sculptures anywhere there was a willing audience. Eventually, his work began to be widely recognized and appreciated. Bryce has now been a professional sculptor for nearly 20 and is featured in a variety of galleries and exhibitions. He has been chosen for several large public works including for the Tulsa International Airport, the Maritime Museum in Ludington Michigan, the Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens in Kawai, Hawaii as well a collection of libraries and schools.

Bryce currently lives in Durango, Colorado surrounded by the mountains and rivers he loves.
