Dean Crouser was born and raised in Oregon and his love of fishing, camping, and wildlife can be found in the expressions of his art. His childhood summers were spent camping and fishing on the foothills of Mt. Hood, Columbia River and Central Oregon High Lakes.
When it comes to his paintings, he tries to keep his work loose and simple. ” I am always striving to say the most with the least. It is important for me to paint a subject in a way the viewer has never seen before.”
Dean Crouser paintings have been used in advertising by Audubon and his art has been licensed by worldwide companies including Patagonia and Big Sky Carvers.
His work is collected by literally thousands of art enthusiasts around the world.
