Dustin Payne


Dustin Payne represents the third generation of professional western sculptors in his family, so it comes as no surprise that the trade was a natural path for him. On his mother’s side he is a descendant of Hiram Daugherty and Mary Jane Goodnight, the sister of Texas Cattle King, Charlie Goodnight. Goodnight and Oliver Loving brought the first longhorns across country from Texas, inaugurating the cattle drive era. As a child, Dustin was heavily influenced by the historical nature of his father and grandfather's work. He feels fortunate to have always been surrounded by great artists and mentors, and to have been brought up around horses and ranching. His passion for the western lifestyle and western American history fuels his desire to preserve the past in the art he creates.
