|Few artists can rival the standards of excellence achieved by Master Artist Terry Redlin over the past 18 years. He is truly one of the country's most widely collected painters of wildlife and Americana. For three consecutive years, 1992-94, Redlin has been named America's most popular artist by U.S. Art magazine. His use of earthy colors, blazing sunrises and sunsets and nostalgic themes are often cited as the reasons for his immense popularity.|
|Redlin's interest in the out-of-doors can be traced to his
childhood in Watertown, S.D. A motorcycle accident ended his dream of becoming a forest
ranger, and he opted to pursue a career in the graphic arts. He earned a degree from the
St. Paul School of Associated Arts and spent 25 years working in commercial art as a
layout artist, graphic designer, illustrator, and art director. In his leisure time he
researched wildlife subjects and settings.
In 1977, at the age of 40, Redlin burst into
the wildlife scene when his painting Winter Snows appeared on the cover of The Farmer
magazine. By 1979, demand for his work had become so great that he left his art directing
career to concentrate on painting wildlife.
