Tyler Crow spent his youth in the small town of Apache, Okla. In 2007 during his senior year in high school, Tyler entered a pencil drawing in the Oklahoma Youth Expo at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Winning a scholarship and Reserve Best of Show gave him a chance to attend a week-long summer painting workshop co-taught by Bruce Greene and Martin Grelle. That was the first time he had ever held a paintbrush.
Taking his art from talent to trade took time and development, but Tyler found his subject matter long before he ever picked up a brush. Cowboy culture and Western heritage have been part of who he is since his earliest days in Oklahoma. He has committed his artistic career to preserving the Western way of life and the contemporary cowboys who live it every day. Tyler feels blessed “to do something I love and to paint the American cowboy.”
Tyler lives in Hico, Texas, with his wife and son.
