When eighteen monumental sculptures by his father, Allan Houser, were displayed at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, Phillip Haozous decided that the artist behind those works should be seen as well.   "I created a maquette for a life-size portrait bronze of my father. In the life-size version, which was exhibited at the 2002 Olympics, Allan wore a beret. In this current version, I show him wearing his favorite cowboy hat."

As one of the sons of renowned sculptor Allan Houser, Phillip Haozous grew up surrounded by art, but took an indirect path to his own artistic career.  After serving in the Air Force where he specialized in developing radar systems, Phillip went on to work in theater and film, as a jeweler, and as the administrator and designer of his family's sculpture garden and studio.  When he began to experiment with sculpting, Phillip says that "Allan was very patient with me and was always there to offer words of encouragement.... He said that if I decided to take up sculpture as a profession, I could be very successful.  I still feel his support and hear his words of encouragement."  It wasn't until the late 1990s, after his father's death, that Phillip began to develop this talent.  Finding some left over clay in his father's studio, he worked with it until he created his first piece, Athanacious Embrace, in 1999.
