This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An Indiana artist who specialized in watercolor landscapes and cityscapes, Denzil "Salty" Seamon showed a natural aptitude for drawing at an early age and was encouraged in his artistic pursuits by his family. Mainly self-taught, Seamon took a home-study art course after winning a poster contest in the seventh grade. After graduating from high school in 1929, he worked at the Paramount Studios in Minneapolis, where he briefly took private art lessons under Gene Hundermark and Walter J. Wilwerding. When the Depression hit in 1931 he returned to Terre Haute and began work at Thomas-Symon, a company that manufactured posters. Seamon served as Art Director at Thomas-Symon for over thirty years.

He exhibited frequently including painting regional landscapes, and scenes from his travels including Mexico, New Mexico and Maine. He was a member and past president of the Brown County Art Gallery Association and the Hoosier Salon in Indianapolis, and won several awards for his art. Seamon also wrote articles on poster and watercolor techniques and taught at DePauw University. He received an honorary doctorate of humanities from the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 1979, where his work is on permanent display in the Seamon Art Salon. He was named a Sagamore of the Wabash Valley by Governor Otis Bowen in 1980 and was recognized by the Indiana State Legislature for his contribution to Indiana art.
