T.D. Kelsey grew up on a ranch near Bozeman, Montana. During his career he was a rodeo cowboy, trained and showed cutting horses, and 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. He is known for his intense, impressionistic sculptures that capture the spirit of his subjects. He is a member emeritus of the Cowboy Artists of America.
