About the artist:
Ken Carlson was born and raised in Minnesota and now resides in the hill country of central Texas. Following art school training, he began his career as a commercial illustrator. In 1968, he put aside commercial work to devote fulltime to painting wildlife. A critical element of Carlson’s work has always been first-hand observation of his wildlife subjects. Each fall, he travels to Alaska, the western prairies, the Canadian Rockies or to Africa to study animals in their varied habitat.
