Updated:


Son of acclaimed western artist, William Moyers (Three-time president of the Cowboy Artists of America), John was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and spent most of his youth in New Mexico. John began his career as an illustrator working as an animator at Walt Disney Studios in California, but in 1979 he accepted an invitation from Cowboy Artist Robert Lougheed to attend an artist workshop at a game preserve in British Columbia. At the workshop, Moyers honed his plein air painting skills and met his future wife, Canadian native and fellow workshop attendee, Terri Kelly Moyers. John captures the essential qualities of a scene by precisely representing colors and values. He goes one step further by using authentic props making his pieces historically correct.

His painting of Pancho Villa was inspired by his first glimpse of the silver thread-laden parade saddle in this year’s auction, which captures John's vision of how Villa may have looked astride his horse and saddle.

From an early age, John Moyers knew he wanted to be an artist. The son of renowned cowboy artist William Moyers, John grew up in Albuquerque, drawing and painting on a daily basis. He began painting from life, working with models and painting on location, rather than relying on photographs for reference. Today, John is one of the most respected painters working in the western and cowboy genres, and his depiction of the contemporary and historical West are among the most sought after on the art market. He lives in Santa Fe with his wife, fellow artist Terri Kelly Moyers. The two share a studio adjacent to their home on the edge of the city, and take full advantage of their New Mexico location. -
