This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A graduate of the University of Texas Law School, he became a landscape painter, primarily of Southwest subjects.

He turned to full-time painting when he was in his mid-fifties, having been in private law practice, served as Assistant Attorney General of Texas, as Associate Dean of the University of Texas Law School, and Dean of Texas Tech University in Lubbock. In 1985, he devoted himself to landscape painting and spent much time in Taos, New Mexico, although he remained a resident of Austin, Texas. His painting career was interrupted for a period in 1994 when he served as interim Director of the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas.

Biography from Taos Gallery:
BYRON FULLERTON
Living in Austin, Texas

Fullerton is a full-time artist devoting himself to South and Southwest landscape painting, many of them small works of panoramic views. He is represented by galleries in states where he frequently paints on location: New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Texas. His enjoyment of painting is obvious by the rich, soft colors he uses to convey the beauty of those places.

His art education is a mix of self-study, private painting lessons, and workshops in Texas, Taos, New Mexico, and the Scottsdale Artists School in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has exhibited in numerous juried shows including those of the Lubbock Art Association; the Taos Impressionist Show; the Scottsdale Artists School, Strokes of Genius Show; the Nita Stewart Haley Show in Midland, Texas; and the Ruidoso, New Mexico Art Fest.

In Texas, he remains well known and distinguished for several aspects of his life: lawyer, humanitarian, politician and artist. Fullerton grew up in Kingsville, Texas, and graduated from the public schools there. Following service in the Army, he held numerous odd jobs including those of truck driver, country music critic, and salesman.

He graduated from the University of Texas and taught school for several years before attending the University of Texas Law School. As law student, he worked for the Legal Aid Clinic and developed such an effective activist role in welfare causes that Kay Bailey Hutchison, then Texas State Treasurer and now U.S. Senator, and several others have established the Byron Fullerton Fund for the Study and Prevention of Family Violence. Fullerton was in the private practice of law and then served as Assistant Attorney General of Texas. He also was the running-mate with George Bush, future President of the United States who was then Texas gubernatorial candidate. For eighteen years, Fullerton was Associate Dean of the University of Texas Law School and then served four-years as Dean of the Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock.

In 1985, he devoted full time to his painting talents. He and his wife Marilyn spent several years in Taos, New Mexico, where he painted with many area top impressionists. But the plan was interrupted a bit, because persons knowing his combined talents for art and administration hired him in 1994 as interim Director of the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas.

Now as a dedicated landscape painter, he produces paintings that "sell like hot cakes." He is also a much-admired human being whom one person described as "a multi-talented, compassionate man with a keen creative mind." How does he handle his success? "It can mainly be measured by the pleasure I receive in the actual painting and having others like it enough to buy it.
