This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in 1949 in Cleburne, Texas, one of his residences was Kopperl, Texas, in Northern Bosque County.

George Hallmark is a realist sculptor and painter of the contemporary Texas cowboy.  He uses oil and mixed media, such as pastel, acrylic, colored pencil, and tempera.

Hallmark was an art major at the Tarrant County Junior College, and later studied at Texas Christian University, but dropped out to study realism.  After working as an illustrator for nine years, both as a free lancer and for an architectural firm, he studied with William Whitaker at Brigham Young University during the summer of 1979.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

After studying with Whitaker in 1979, Hallmark began his painting career painting local historic buildings for new branches of banks in the northern Hill Country of Texas.  The paintings were commissioned by the banks and signed prints were sold to benefit the local historical societies.

In the mid 1990s, Hallmark decided to leave commercial art and pursue his own visions. The artist traveled extensively in Mexico and France and painted scenes which compelled him personally.  His new paintings sold well and in 2000 he was invited to show his work in the Masters of the American West Show at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles.  The next year he was invited back and one of his paintings sold to Howard Terpning.

Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Born and raised in central Texas, George Hallmark was an architectural designer and commercial artist before turning to easel painting.  Voted the Official Texas State Artist in 1988, he gained recognition for his landscapes and rural Americana scenes.  Recent years have seen him drawing heavily on his architectural background to produce colorful and texture rich paintings that capture old stucco buildings, crowded street markets, and century old European buildings and cobblestone streets.

George Hallmark’s paintings are found in prestigious private and corporate collections including Texas Instruments, M.B.N.A., and the Medical Heritage Collection.  In 2002, his work was selected for the Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage show.
