For many years in his hometown of Laguna Beach, California, he pursued his art as a hobby. As recognition came his way, he began to sculpt full time. In 1974, he sculpted Spooked and became an overnight sensation, winning many awards for this depiction of a really rough moment in the life of a cowboy. Sid Burns’ career as a Western sculptor was just beginning when cancer took his life in 1979.
