Jack Sorenson

Bio

Though born in 1954, Jack Sorenson grew up living the Old West lifestyle that he now depicts in his work! Coming of age living and working at Six Gun City, a dude ranch and frontier town situated on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon and owned by his father, Sorenson was deeply embedded with a love of all things western. Whereas other teenagers spent their adolescence working in retail or fast food, Sorenson worked as a stagecoach driver, a performance gunfighter, and a horse breaker. A naturally gifted artist since childhood, Sorenson began painting full-time in 1974. After his first one man show sold out the same year, Sorenson committed himself to a career in art. His paintings have appeared on more than eighty magazine covers including Wester Horseman, The Cattleman, America’s Horse and The Quarter Horse Journal. His Leanin’ Tree Christmas and Greeting Cards have sold in the millions. Sorenson feels he is Blessed to make the living painting cowboys and the scenes he loves. He has often said, “I’m in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, doing exactly what God wants me to do. You can’t ask for more than that.”
