This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known especially for his wildlife painting, teaching skills and book illustrations, Farrell Collett had a wide ranging career, living primarily in Utah but spending time in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago.  He was raised in rural Utah and Idaho, and from childhood had a love of animals and landscape subjects.

He received his early art training at Brigham Young University.  From 1933 to 1938, he was an illustrator and art teacher at Provo High School, and spent his summers studying at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco and at the Art Institute and American Academy of Art in Chicago.

In 1938, Collett took a teaching position for one year in a high school in Ogden, Utah, and the next year founded the art department at Weber College, which became Weber State University.  He remained at Weber College until 1976 excepting a few years in the 1940s when he worked in New York City as an illustrator.

His illustration career included 27 books.  He also worked as the principal painter for western historical projects including publication documentation of the Oregon Trail.

Farrell Collett retired from official art-related positions in 1986, but continued easel painting.  His 1995 painting, Jacob Hamblin Teaching the Shivwitz is in the St. George Art Museum.
