This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Trained as a naturalist and biologist, the specialty of Sidney Wildesmith is luminous landscapes. He travels national parks and performs contemporary music all around the country.

While a student at the University of Minnesota, he was hired as a summer naturalist at Minnesota's largest state Park. It was about this time that his artistic talents became evident. He started drawing plants and flowers as field notes. In the process, the beauty of form began to fascinate him. This quest merged with his art, becoming basis for his growth as an artist.

Sidney moved from the Midwest, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and then to San Diego, and his career took off from there. He studied with landscapist A.D. Greer, and the Luminist nature of work emerged.

As his landscapes took form, Sidney began traveling and painting, especially the National Parks. Feeling right at home as an experienced naturalist, he began exploring the wonders of the National Parks, and interpreting it though art. His goal was to provide others the opportunity to enrich their appreciation of this subject through drawing and painting, writing, and poetry, and by composing and performing original music.

To further this end, he founded and was the Director of the National Parks Touring Artists Program with the National Park Service. He has served as
Artist in Residence in various National Parks, including Yellowstone,
Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonlands and Redwoods. His efforts have directly touched over a million park visitors.

Wildesmith has been living in the San Diego region for the past ten years.
