Sean Sexton was born in Indian River County and grew up on his family’s Treasure Hammock Ranch, eight miles west of Vero Beach, Florida. He divides his time between taking care of a 600-acre cow-calf and seedstock operation and painting and writing. He is married to artist Sharon Sexton, and they live on the ranch with their two children in a house they built with their hands.
He has kept journal-sketch books drawn from his life since 1973 and was awarded an Individual Artist’s Fellowship from the State of Florida in 2000-2001. He is the author of Waldo’s Mountain, Brief History of a Small Elevation (Waterview Press, 2001) about his grandfather, Waldo Sexton.
