Today we are launching a selection of wildlife prints from new-to-McGaw artists Chad Poppleton and Mark Kelso, along with new work from acclaimed wildlife photographer Art Wolfe. Utah-based artist Chad Poppleton first became interested in wildlife when he worked on the family farm and ranch with his father and grandfather. It was here that he learned to understand animal attitudes and behaviors that would prove invaluable while creating his art. His father taught him how to draw and observe the world with an artist’s eye. Being an outdoorsman, his experiences while hunting, fishing and exploring the mountains solidified his close relationship with nature and enabled him to depict landscapes and wildlife so accurately.

Mark Kelso also came from a background steeped in art and nature. He studied painting at John Herron School of Art where he began working with social, philosophical and environmental subject matter. The exploration of these themes led him start working on wildlife and landscape subjects, which is still his focus today. View Mark Kelso’s Wildlife Prints .
