Born on the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota, Red Owl is an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Red Owl’s artistic expressions are self-taught. He prefers discovering for himself without formal instruction.

Red Owl has studied and been inspired by Oscar Howe, Hobart Keith, and Charles Russell. Over the years, he has experimented with cubism, realism, and abstract compositions. He prefers to work in acrylics on canvas, because he feels that the bright and warm colors help bring out the gentle and colorful traits of the Lakota Sioux people.

Red Owl has shown his work in several states. He participates annually in the Red Cloud Art Show in Pine Ridge. Over the past two decades, he has collected numerous awards, including the Best Depiction Award in 1993 and the prestigious Oscar Howe Award in 1994. In the late 1960s, he helped found the Oglala Sioux Artists Association.
