About Rob Anderson
When asked about his art education and experience Rob said, "I was born and raised on a cattle ranch in the Rocky Mountains where I fell in love with nature and began drawing at a young age. As a child I spent hours watching my scoutmaster noted Wildlife artist Clark Bronson paint and sculpt in his studio. I attended Brigham Young University, and studied art under the tutelage of Frank Magleby, and James Christensen. While at Brigham Young, I was chosen to travel and perform on the International Touring Dance Team representing the University.
My youth taught me appreciation for nature and its beauty. Dancing and touring across Europe and communist China among other places, instilled the hunger for travel and discovering other cultures. I've been lucky enough to paint on-site in some inspiring places. The Alaskan tundra, the British Isles...the Grand Tetons and now the craggy coast of Maine. The possibilities here are endless. I do Love painting."
