As a boy Don Weller drew horses and cowboys when he wasn’t exploring with his horse. His passions were horses and art. He sold some cartoons to Western Horseman magazine and roped calves in high school and college. He graduated from Washington State University and moved to Los Angeles where he spent decades doing graphic design and illustration. He did covers for Time magazine, TV Guide and created five stamps for the United States Post Office. He also taught art at UCLA and at the Art Center School.
When he realized he had seen all the cement and palm trees he could stand, Don and his family moved to Oakley, Utah, where Don creates Western paintings and rides his cutting horses.
He has been profiled in Southwest Art, Art of the West, Western Art Collector, and others, and is represented in several galleries in the West.
