Pettit has always had a passion for creating. He grew up drawing and painting, but when he first discovered sculpture, a deep connection was forged. 
Since he always loved animals and the outdoors more than anything, when Bryce entered college, he focused his studies in biology and ecology. Eventually his passion for art became undeniable, and he realized he could apply his education towards making a career as a sculptor of the wildlife he immersed himself in during his free time.
At first he took any sculpting job he could find which included creating architectural details and hardware for large companies. Later he used these skills to be able to create functional art within his bronze sculpting.

As he progressed, Pettit's skills earned him more and more freedom to sculpt whatever he imagined, and from these inspired creations, he has received various national and regional awards. Bryce has sculptures in public and private collections throughout the country, thanks to his entrepreneurial efforts, multiple shows every year, and more than ten galleries nationwide. You may spot Pettit's work outside a library, in an international airport or town center, among other conspicuous locations.

Bryce currently resides alongside the river in Durango, CO, where he keeps his studio, goes fishing, and raises his kids, Lydia, Alan, Jesse, and Thea.
