Black and white photograph of artist Chessney Sevier crouched on the ground wearing a black cowboy hat, jeans and cowboy bootsA great source of Chessney Sevier’s artistic aspiration comes from her mother’s artistic example and the simple beauty of the Nebraska Sandhills where she grew up. On a rodeo scholarship, Chessney attended Chadron Stage College and later graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art in 1998. She first began her art career as a graphic designer for a leading outdoor recreation company. Later, after moving to Wyoming in 2001, she became a full-time professional painter and printmaker. Today, the Wyoming landscape and culture influence her work more than anything else. She shows primarily at The Brinton Museum, The National Museum of Wildlife Art and the Museum of the Big Bend. Chessney and her daughter Jymie live outside Buffalo, Wyoming.”

“Could be a combination of the cowgirl and the artist in me but I find horned Hereford cattle to be one of God’s most aesthetic creatures
