"I've been studying the American Impressionists, a genre curiously absent from most art history curriculum. The influence and benefit to my work has been significant."
Rob grew up on the Montana prairies and in the Montana mountains. He spent youthful summers working steel gangs, trail crews and harvesting wheat, and has hiked much of Glacier National Park. He paints his native Montana to elevate and preserve her magnificence. Rob is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and was the Director of Creative Services for Tonka Toys.
Rob paints full-time from his studio in Whitefish, Montana, and participates regularly in invitational, juried and plein air events throughout the country. His work is displayed in galleries across Montana and appears in private, public, and corporate collections throughout the United States. He is currently president of the prestigious Montana Painters Alliance. His work has been published in Western Art Collector, The Big Sky Journal, Distinctly Montana and The Whitefish Review.
