Joe R. Sisneros


Tesuque, New Mexico

Born and raised in Tesuque, New Mexico, he is a self-taught artist who currently lives and works in Tesuque. After high school he first began his career at the Art Foundry in Santa Fe, working there for 4 years starting from the bottom and working his way up. The next 13 years were spent working for the Allan Houser Foundry, where it was here that he actively started producing his animal sculptures. The name Sisneros is of Spanish descent and literally translated means “Keeper of the Swans”. It is fitting to him as Sisneros began his love for animals and art as a young man in elementary school. His inspiration comes from all around him, as he has developed a large visual diary that he draws from when sculpting his animals. A majority of his works begin in wax, others have started in clay, but the end result is always a beautiful hand patina bronze. His wall pieces have been a little more abstracted, “Monica’s Harvest” for example, was a work piecemealed from other divested works he composed and welded into its final form.
