Jason Scull grew up in a family that farmed and ranched on the fringes of the South Texas brush country. His ancestors, early settlers who arrived in Texas in the mid-1820s, ranched, raised families, fought wars, and carved their place into the American West. It is from his early experiences and heritage that his art has been shaped, directed, and inspired.
Scull’s life with cattle and horses coupled with his respect for the culture of the American West have long inspired his art. He studied animal science at Texas A&M and returned to the family ranch, where he remained involved in the operation until 2010. His early study of sculpture began in 1987 through the Cowboy Artists of America Museum workshop program. Additional education came in the form of personal study with established artists, most notably Jack Swanson, Mehl Lawson, and Cynthia Rigden. Scull was a member of the Cowboy Artists of America from 2011 to 2022.
Scull’s most recent awards include the Jim Bowie Award for Sculpture at the Briscoe Western Art Museum 2023 Night of Artists. He and his wife, Dianne, make their home in the Texas Hill Country near Kerrville, Texas.
