Morgan Weistling, b. 1964, California, (United States)
Well known for his paintings of early American pioneer life, Morgan Weistling began his art career as a movie-poster illustrator. After 14 years, he left illustration to pursue fine art. Interested in the effects of light, Weistling’s paintings capture the mood and atmosphere of the past. His attention to the historical aspects of his subjects comes from his desire to portray the truth and beauty of America’s pioneering spirit. Weistling and his wife, JoAnn, also an artist, reside in California with their daughters, Brittany and Sienna.
