Roger Cruwys, b. 1938, New York, (United States)\
Inspired by the surrounds of the "Last Best Place," Roger Cruwys has found the ideal environment to pursue his art. Currently residing in Bozeman, Montana, Roger's ability to create lifelike images via "realistic impressionism" has earned him the reputation of a leading figure in wildlife and sporting art. Equally at home on a stream or marsh, Roger turned his full attention toward wildlife and sporting art as a career in 1978.
An avid sportsman, guide and self-taught, award-winning artist, with undergraduate and graduate degrees in landscape architecture/urban design from Syracuse University and the University of California at Berkeley, Roger's wildlife, dog portraiture and angling art have found ready acceptance throughout the country in major galleries and private collections.
For many years, Roger illustrated noted author and essayist Gene Hill's column, "Hill Country," appearing in “Field & Stream” magazine, for which Gene thanked Roger for "always making his articles look so good."
The late “Sporting Classics” columnist, Shelly Spindell was an enthusiastic fan of Roger's work, as was the late Michael Mcintosh, eminent hunting and gun enthusiast, columnist and author, who proclaimed him to be "one of the best dog artists in the country."
