Don Weller drew horses and cowboys and roped calves in high school and college rodeos. Graduating from Washington State University, he moved to California where he spent decades doing graphic design and illustration. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators. Realizing he had seen all the cement and palm trees he could stand, he moved to Utah. There Don creates western paintings and rides his cutting horses.
His paintings have received many awards, including the Jones Award from the Bosque Art Center and the Steel Dust Award from the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum. He had a retrospective show at Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah, last year.
He is represented by several galleries; his web address is www.donweller.com.
