Sam Caldwell

Biography from Thornwood Gallery

Sam Caldwell is known for his coastal scenes of waterfowl and game-fish.  Working primarily in transparent watercolor, the Houston native seeks to capture the atmosphere of the moment, as well as the color and drama inherent in his outdoor subjects.

Many of his recent images feature young hunters and fishers.  "Wildlife is primary in my work," he says, but notes that "people are important elements of wildlife." 

Early in his career, Sam became involved in outdoor organizations like Ducks Unlimited and the Coastal Conservation Association.  He remains deeply involved in promoting coastal scenes as fine art, and uses his printed images to help the coast.  The Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo posters of '93 and '94, and a '95 Operation Game Thief poster have become classic outdoor images of the '90s.  His work has been featured for years in the TP and W Annual Regulation booklet.

When Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine did their first-ever art center spread, they chose a Caldwell painting, which then raised money for TP&W at an Expo auction. 
To open the millennium, Sam produced a fund-raising print for Sea Center Texas, Silver King Express, and another print, Tradition Continued for the recent Operation Game Thief event at Enron Field.

He is proud that the American Red Cross chose one of his paintings to help provide funds for 9-11 relief. 

Caldwell is also well known as an outdoor writer.  His co-authored book for the CCA, Change of Tides, A Narrative History of the Coastal Conservation Association, was named as Texas' best out door book for 2000.

Sam Caldwell spends painting time in the outdoors, as well as studios in Humble, Splendora and Houston, Texas.
