Herman Walker spent his formative years in the ranch country of West Texas on a 120 square mile ranch. After receiving a degree in Animal Science from Texas Tech University, Herman began to paint the West as he remembers it.
From 1973-1978, Herman and his wife, Deanne, had a gallery/foundry in Kerrville, Texas. When his paintings and sculpture began to gain recognition, they moved back to Eldorado, Texas, to be close to subject matter he loved. For years his work was sold throughout the West and Mid-West, where he received many awards.
In 2008 Herman and Deanne moved back to Kerrville. Recently his work has been shown in America’s Horse in Art Show; Trappings of Texas at the Museum of the Big Bend, Alpine, Texas; Bosque Art Classic in Clifton, Texas; Windows to the West in Estes Park, Colorado; Texas Cowboy Reunion Show in Stamford, Texas; American Plains Artists; Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, where Herman was the featured artist in February 2012.
