About Don Crouch
“My art is a combination of printmaking, bronze sculpture and oil painting. The subjects that most interest me are large animals in landscapes, mostly North American. I also do subjects including ancient ruins and artifacts of Indian art of the Americas. In my studio I am surrounded by life-size taxidermy mounts, which are my friends and subjects. The walls are covered with contemporary and iconic painters like Carl Rungius. Making and collecting art is a way of life for me.”
-Don Crouch, Born Carlsbad, New Mexico, 1940.
