Luke Frazier (b. 1970)
Luke Frazier grew up hunting and fishing in the mountains of northern Utah. These early forays into nature instilled a kinship with the wildlife, and a passion for the outdoors. Influenced by the art of Winslow Homer, Edgar Payne, Carl Rungius and Bob Kuhn, Frazier appreciates the strength of drawing, color and emotion. Every year, Luke travels through Alaska, Canada, and the American West painting and photographing animals in their environment. His love of fly fishing and hunted is apparent in his work.
He has been included in the book The Fine Art of Angling, published in October 2007, and he was the 2007 Featured Artist for the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. He has been profiled in American Artist, Art of the West, Big Sky Journal, Southwest Art and the Wildlife Art.
