John Fawcett

Birth place or City of origin: Cedar Rapids
State of origin: IA
Last known City: Clark
Last known State: CO
Start/Birth date: 1952
Death/End date:

An award winning artist working in watercolor and oil, John has spent his life studying and gaining inspiration from his subjects. He began his study of the interactions between people and animals first as a practicing veterinarian for twenty years, and then as a full-time artist. He remains fascinated by the relationship between cowboys and animals. This combination of veterinarian and artist has given Fawcett’s works a level of detail in which his first hand knowledge of horses, dogs and livestock is evident. His goal is to not only portray the interactions between animals and people; he always wants “to make the viewer smell the horse, hear the hoof beats, have all their senses be taken in by the painting.”
