Stirring moods. Engaging action. Flirtatious light. The art of Lee Kromschroeder captures the imagination of the viewer and pulls him into the animated world of his canvas. "What I like to do is create a total environment for the animal. I feel everything in a painting is equally as important as the subject." Through exhaustive research of his subject's anatomy, behavior & habitat and continually challenging his skills, Kromschroeder has emerged as one of the most recognized and celebrated artists of the genre.

This South Dakota artist has been developing her natural talents and sharpening her skills since she was a young girl. Through her formal education and work as a commercial artist, Millette has learned to approach her work with vivacity and employ rigorous self-discipline. Whether painting elk, pheasants or chickadees; her mastery of skills is apparent. By carefully studying her subject matter, Millette realistically portrays each animal's physical structure and tone. Yet, her paintings offer the viewer more than a photo-realistic representation. The use of light and color, the composition, and the perspective of each complementing background reveal and reinforce the quintessential qualities of the animal.
Rosemary Millette is especially proud of her association with groups striving to preserve and protect wildlife and the natural environment. Her work has been selected for over a dozen state conservation stamps and she works closely with Pheasants Forever, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Minnesota Deer Hunter's Association.
