Don Weller

Don Weller

As a boy, Don Weller drew horses and cowboys covering the rolling hills that surrounded his childhood home near Pullman, Washington. He roped calves in high school and college rodeos and sold some cartoons to Western Horseman magazine. His passions were horses and art.  He graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Fine Art and then spent decades doing graphic design and illustration.  He also taught art part-time at UCLA and the Art Center School in Pasadena.

Finally, Don realized he had seen all the cement and palm trees he could stand.  After moving to Utah, he rediscovered his passion for horses after working on a cutting horse book project.  He then spent much time in arenas and on ranches in Texas, Arizona, California, and Montana.

Don’s many watercolor works capture the detailed beauty of the natural world of Western America, from hills of rock to wide, green ranch lands.  He has won numerous awards at art shows (Cheyenne Frontier Days, American Plains Artists, Bosque Art Classic, Traces of the West, Kimball Art Center, Phippen Museum, Traveling the West, and many others), as well as published several books about his works.

Don and his wife, Cha Cha, live in rural Oakley, Utah, where he creates western paintings and rides cutting horses.  He is represented by galleries in Texas, New Mexico, Utah, California, Arizona, Wyoming, and Oklahoma
