Having grown up in the American West, I am naturally drawn to portraying the lives and history of the people of this region. For those of us who work in this genre, it is a privilege to stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us.


AFTER TWO YEARS at Colorado State University, Barry Eisenach attended and graduated from Colorado Institute of Art. He spent twenty-three years as an illustrator and graphic designer before turning his attention to sculpting and painting. Eisenach was featured in the January 2000 edition of Southwest Art and the July/August 2008 and 2011 issues of Art of the West. He was elected to membership in the Northwest Rendezvous Group in 2003 and is a juried Sculptor Member of the National Sculpture Society. He and his wife, Patti, enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains, snorkeling, beaches, and travel. Their son, Justin, lives in California.
