He spent summers as a boy on his grandparents' ranch in Wyoming where his grandmother gave him his first set of oilpaints. It was there that he grew to love the country, the open spaces, and the rural lifestyle.
Robert has painted professionally for about 25 years. He studied art at the University of Utah and worked as a commercial artist before his full-time dedication to the fine art of the American West.
Robert was elected into the Cowboy Artists of America at a young age and won two silver medals in their annual exhibition at the Pheonix Art Museum -- a dream come true.
Robert, his wife Linda, their six children, and a lively assortment of farm animals live in the little town of Midway in northern Utah.
