Howard Terpning biography:
Born in Oak Park, Illinois and receiving his art education at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art, Howard Terpning became one of the best known and financially successful members of the Cowboy Artists of America.
He had an eight-year apprenticeship in commercial art in Chicago and then moved to New York City where he spent twenty five years as an illustrator, creating work for numerous publications including Time, Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, Field and Stream and Cosmopolitan. Other clients included Gold Label Cigars, Trans World Airlines (TWA) and Pendleton Woolen Mills.
In the mid-1970s, he dropped commercial work and moved to Arizona. In 1974, he began creating his first western paintings, and in 1979, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA), an exclusive group of painters dedicated to the western genre.
His paintings focus on Native American people of the Great Plains during the nineteenth century and have earned numerous prestigious awards including approximately two dozen gold and silver medals from the CAA.
Howard lives with his wife in Tucson, Arizona.
