About Herb Mignery
Herb Mignery Herb Mignery was born on a ranch near Bartlett, Nebraska in 1931. He remembers never being able to tolerate a blank space on a piece of paper, and as a result, developed his artistic talent drawing cartoons for friends. Although he developed his skill to become an illustrator, it wasn't painting that would launch his career in the world of fine art. At the urging of one of his employers, he decided to sculpt his first bronze called Veteran. It was from that point on that he devoted himself exclusively to bronze sculpture. Mignery's focus has been on cowboys, but is also inspired by the early Western pioneers. Elected to the National Sculpture Society in 1996 Won five gold medals for best sculpture at the annual Cowboy Artists of America show.
