Austin Barton was raised in the Snake River and Wallowa Valleys of Eastern Oregon. After a tour in the Navy during WWII and later completing commercial art school, he spent the next 20 years as a fashion and merchandise illustrator at a well-known outlet, working his way up to head of the art department. Although he was accomplished in many forms of fine art, his primary focus became sculpture after casting his first piece in 1985. Austin's works are represented by Phinney Gallery of Fine Art in Oregon.
