Creating in a medium that combines not only two generations of knowledge in traditional saddlery, but the virtuosity of a fine artist, Robert Pace Kidd (RPK) captures the rugged individualism of the west and its people.

His commissioned portraits bring a three dimensional aspect that gives astonishing life and energy to the RPK art piece.  His type of artistry creates a living monument to a subject, unfelt in centuries. 

Using the traditional tools of saddlery and implements of his own creation, each square inch of bas-relief is hand sculpted under countless blows, indelibly recording every detail. It is a precise art, for one slip of the hammer could ruin an entire piece. 

Once the sculpture is complete fine art pigments suspended in a wax-based medium are then employed to add color. Magnifying the mood and character of the sculpted subject.  Because each piece takes several months to complete, and RPK is the only known artist with this technique,  there will never be an oversupply of his fine art.
