Thomas B. Fuller A Biography
I am a born Artist. I am a born Cowboy. Being a Cowboy artist is what, and who I am. The purpose of my work is to present a gateway for you (viewer) to step into that moment, and feel its soul. Not just an outward experience, but also an inward significance.
My life’s journey is to portray and preserve the Culture of the American West. I don’t keep track of hours, days, weeks, months and years. I learned by trial and error how to portray the character of the cowboy, the unspoken language of the horse, tack and its relationship between rider and mount.
I am a native of Wichita, Kansas. The history of the Cowboy legacy is part of my family culture. Stories of Belle Starr, the Dalton Brothers etc. are handed down from generation to generation. My grandparents lived during that time, and in the same area as these now famous people.
