This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Utah artist, Doyle Shaw was born in Boise, Idaho and studied art at the University of Utah with the late Alvin Gittins in portrait and figure, and independently with LeConte Stewart in landscape painting, who happened to live three blocks away in the same town of Kaysville, Utah. After teaching a year at the University of Utah, Doyle opened a studio for full-time fine art.

Numerous shows have followed, both one-man and combined, with a number of awards garnered. Of his work it has been said: "Doyle Shaw is a realist-impressionist landscape and figure painter of juicy pigments and sonorous color. His canvases are tied to nature with a silver-toned thread, with themes resounding with the spirit of the west. He can paint toe-to-toe with most contemporary American painters and in this will be recognized as a fine artist," Vern G. Swanson, Phd. Director of the Springville Art Museum, art historian, author, and educator.

"Doyle Shaw understands the accelerated problems involved in painting a large painting. A large pile of rocks in the foreground are infused with a firey energy balanced with cool and warm colors, lost and found edges with a lacy tracery of muted yellow quakes off in the distance, may have given me the desire to do landscapes again," George Dibble, Salt Lake Tribune, educator and painter.

Paintings by Doyle Shaw can be found in private, corporate, and museum collections throughout the U.S. Private students have sought him out for instruction, and currently Utah Valley State College retains him as an adjunct professor.

Shaw discusses his work in saying, "I am enthralled with the exquisite color, design and majesty of the earth and the inhabitants of it. Standing out in a sea of waist high grass and feeling distance take off, not just see it but feel it, feel a cumulus cloud bode overhead leaving a moving shadow of ever changing nuances of cool and warm colors to excite or rest the senses. The absolute subtle color shift from the bridge of a nose to the highlight on the end of a nose. The infinite variety of the set of an eye to the occupational and hereditary telling of the gesture of a hand. The intimacy of a still life with the blast of reflected color and light off of silver. All this and more as my understanding grows more profound the more immersed in this art I become."
