About the Artist

Jeff Acord

Sculptor Jeff Acord

I enjoyed a career in telecommunications but was always pulled by the urge to create and dreamed I might one day live in the Rocky Mountains.

In 1995, after much discussion with my wife, I left the corporate world and the big city and we moved north to Montana.

We now live 20 miles from the headwaters of the Missouri River -- the same river that flowed past the southwest Iowa town where I spent the first 18 years of my life.

I have been blessed with a love for art, creativity, and the natural wonders of the Rocky Mountains. I have had the good fortune of studying and learning from masters in the fields of carving, sculpting,and woodworkng over the past 30 years. What I learned from them has been invaluable.
