Biography  
Dennis Anderson


Biography from the Archives of askART

Dennis P. Anderson is a realist/impressionist/representational oil painter of wildlife. He is interested not in how other people see an animal, but in the impression the animal makes on him. He uses color to achieve his effects.

As a child, Anderson had many pets such as rabbits, raccoons, and foxes which were an inspiration and source of art for him. When he became older, he regularly went through the motions of hunting, but would use a camera instead of a gun. He attended the Art Center School for two years, then worked briefly as a scientific illustrator and for a greeting card company.

Anderson usually works on four to five paintings at once. This way, he does not feel bad if he decides to throw one out. He is a member of the National Academy of Western Art and is represented by Wildlife World Art Museum.
