Ever since Sutton Betti was a child, he has had a natural inclination for drawing. His artistic family background has had a profound effect on his artistic development. After enrolling in the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Sutton developed an interest in sculpture. He subsequently worked as a sculptor's assistant to bronzes sculptors in California and Colorado, which eventually led to a professional career in sculpture starting in 2008.
Today, the sculptor produces intricately detailed bronze sculptures imbued with a lifelike quality. His monumental pieces celebrate the achievements and sacrifices of historical figures, military, civic leaders and athletes.
