Dan Bodelson, b. 1949, Minnesota, (United States)
Dan Bodelson was born in Minnesota and spent his childhood growing up in Colorado and New Mexico. After graduating college, he worked briefly as an illustrator in San Francisco. He left his illustrating career in San Francisco after a year, as his love for painting pulled him back to Santa Fe where he has lived and painted ever since. Bodelson’s subject matter includes the American Indian and their lives, scenes of past and present from western life, subtle landscapes, and delicate still lifes. Bodelson's imagination is kindled by Western literature as well as the natural beauty which surrounds him.
