Kapp, GaryI was raised on a small ranch in Oregon and later went to BYU where I studied art and had the opportunity to study with Ken Riley. I then went to work for a motion picture co. Painting backdrops, special effects and illustrating filmstrips. After a few years of this I decided to begin serious painting for galleries and found good success painting cowboys and ranch life, the subject I knew best. Later I became very interested in my Pioneer history and the Indian culture that was very prominent here in Utah and surrounding states. I have been painting for major galleries for 40 years now and still love every minute.
