Honorary Artist Member since 1987
Christened “Shoofly” by his brother-in-law, Paul “Red River” Beer, while on the Verde Vacquero Ride in 1967, Sunflower Arizona.
After 15 years as a top Chicago Illustrator, Shoofly moved his family to a remote ranch in Wickenburg, AZ in 1975 and began a new career in Western Fine Art.
With immense talent and superb artistry, his work depicts the true American West, which can only come from years in the saddle as a working cowboy.
Shoofly proves that a pencil can be art form in its own right. These works are dedicated to those cowboys he has had the privilege to work side by side with.
