Hyde, Doug

Hyde, Doug

Oregon-born Native American sculptor Doug Hyde grew up learning about his Nez Perce, Assiniboine, and Chippewa ancestry from his grandfather and other elders. They taught him about animal legends, morality of his people, creation of man, and the ways of Mother Earth. Hyde attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe and, briefly, the San Francisco Art Institute before enlisting in the United States Army in the late 1960s.

Hyde was seriously wounded by a grenade during his second tour of duty in Vietnam. While recuperating, he took a job at a friend’s tombstone business where he learned how to cut and shape stone using power tools. Hyde began making sculpture at night, after work. When he sold out of sculpture in the first show he entered, Hyde realized that he could pursue a life as a sculptor. The artist has lived and worked in Santa Fe since 1972, creating bronze and stone sculptures that represent historical events or the stories told to him in his youth.
