“When a character emerges from a work I am sculpting, I feel touched at a deeply intimate, subconscious level. It is the essence in a work of art that makes it intensely personal and entirely universal at the same time.”

Since moving to the Southwest in 1985, Star Liana York has been creating a vast body of work that reflects her interest in the people, animals, environment and history of the region. A continuous source of creativity for her bronze sculptures comes from exploring the native peoples of the Southwest and the mythology of ancient sacred sites.

She is an avid horsewoman, riding daily on her ranch near Abiquiu, New Mexico, where she finds inspiration surrounded by the vast open vistas.

York has been named one of Southwest Art’s thirty most influential artists. In 2013, she was selected as an Honorary Artist at The Millicent Rogers Museum Taos, New Mexico, and received the Artist Choice Award at the National Cowgirls Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas.

Her monumental bronze sculptures are held in collections across the country including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos, and Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.
