Matt Atkinson, Colorado Western Oil Painter
Matt Atkinson is a Colorado-based painter whose work is found in collections throughout North America and Europe. He has a degree in Studio Art from the University of Tennessee, and is a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Plains Artists, and Western Associates Artists. “My traditional oil paintings portray the American west from days gone by to present, including the landscapes, wildlife, and cultures that give the mountains their special feeling. I also work with tribal leaders, historians and museums to ensure historical accuracy in my depictions of mountain men, cowboys, and members of the Crow, Sioux, Cheyenne, Blackfeet, Navajo, Ute, Ojibway, and Arapaho people. To do this, I travel across the west, hiring historians, models, horse wranglers and horses, and using collections of historic clothing and accessories to arrange each scene individually.” Our next artist that will showcasing their beautiful pieces will be Jared Brady. Feel free to stop in at Forest Ridge to view and or purchase any artwork that you like.
