Robert Fida has been producing work throughout his life and proudly declares his addiction to the creative process. After retiring a several years ago, he now dedicates his time to his art in his Frisco, Texas, studio. While living in Wyoming for most of his life, Robert's artistic journey began with a deep fascination for Western art, which profoundly impacted him. However, his artistic preferences underwent a notable transformation over time, leading him to shift away from Western art and embrace contemporary styles.
As a self-taught artist, Robert firmly believes in the power of learning through practice. Despite his vast experience, he humbly acknowledges that there is always more to learn. Throughout his artistic career, Robert has explored various mediums, from paintings to monumental sculptures, displaying his versatility and mastery of different forms of expression.
One of Robert's notable milestones occurred in the early eighties when he held his first exhibition at the Wyoming State Museum. The show was a resounding success, with every piece being sold, affirming his talent and resonating with art enthusiasts.

The next notable milestone occurred in the early nineties when Ted and Marjorie Trefren of Cheyenne, Wyoming, had discussed the idea of erecting a Marian Shrine in Wyoming for many years. After visiting numerous shrines in the Old World, such as Medjugorje, Lourdes, and Fatima, their vision became a reality. Robert Fida was commissioned to design and sculpt the Our Lady of Peace Shrine. The sculpture weighs 180 tons and stands over 30 feet tall, making it one of the largest Marian sculptures in the United States.
