Jack Sorenson has been a full-time western artist since 1974 after selling out his first one-man show. His work has appeared on the covers of more than seven dozen magazines including Western Horseman, Beef, The Cattleman, The Quarter Horse Journal, and America’s Horse. Featured articles of his work have been published in Southwest Art, Persimmon Hill, Western Horseman, Western Art Collector, and many more. He recently became a member of The Cowboy Artists of America. 

Jack grew up living the Old West lifestyle at Six Gun City, a dude ranch next to the Palo Duro Canyon owned by his father, which influenced his love for stories and imagery that characterized the Old West. As a teenager, he worked as a stagecoach driver, a performance gunfighter, and a horse trainer until he committed himself to career in art and never looked back.

Jack has been one of Leanin’ Tree greeting cards top artists for many years with more than 100 images in print. His work has appeared on many products, including jig-saw puzzles, bedding, tile murals, and even on a paint-by-number kit. Harvest House Publishing has released two books featuring Jack’s paintings. In July 2009, the Texas legislature passed a resolution to honor him. Jack has also been immortalized in the Palo Duro Canyon, when the park named a peak, “Sorenson Point,” after him.
