Somewhere near timberline in the mighty San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado, Davis rides on horseback to spectacular vistas of the Continental Divide and beyond. This rugged outdoorsman was lucky enough to spend summers in Colorado from age fourteen - living a life of adventure and communing with the wilderness.
After dental school, it was an easy choice to settle in a “one horse” town, and hang his shingle. He settled on the family ranch, which provided a wonderful rural upbringing for his three children.
Davis’s artistic journey has taken many forms: music, drawing, painting, sculpture, welding, woodworking, restoring old vehicles, saving historical buildings — and turning just about anything into something useful. Davis is a true Renaissance man — blessed with extraordinary talent, vision and heart. His many forms of creative expression reflect his love for the wild beauty that surrounds his life.
Join Randall Davis and a cast of performers representing Pagosa’s diverse artistic talent at “Magical Mountain Village.”’
