From the age of twenty-one the wilderness called Buck Mountain. His exploration of Washington's high Cascade Mountains, inland deserts, and later the high country Bob Marshall Wilderness of western Montana began to shape his artistic vision. He began seeing more detail in smaller pieces of everyday life.
Buck's complex ink drawings portray wildlife, Native American stories and historic events in a unique blend of geometric lines, silhouettes and minute pen strokes. Within each drawing, people can see something new every time they look. Just following a line from start to finish can change the way the piece presents itself. Buck's black and white drawings are distinctive, standing out from more traditional art forms.
Buck Mountain, The name given to him from a native Colville woman, adorns all his work.
