Tyler was born and raised in Loyalton, CA in the heart of Sierra Valley, and grew up in Sierra Valley hunting and fishing with his father and grandfather, and painting with his mother.
He left Sierra Valley to attend college and I would only paint Christmas gifts for family or special occasions. When he returned to Sierra Valley his art career took off with inspiration coming from the wildlife he was surrounded by once again.
Tyler specializes in painting birds, but enjoys painting all sorts of wildlife. He finds his paintings look their best in barnwood frames.
