Luke Frazier

Luke Frazier grew up in a large family of brothers who loved hunting and fishing in the mountains of northern Utah. His early forays into nature instilled a kinship with the wildlife and a passion for the outdoors. As a child, he spent hours scribbling, sketching, and sculpting wildlife. Later, his formal art training occurred at Utah State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and a Master of Fine Arts degree in illustration.

Every year, Frazier travels from Alaska to Africa, painting and photographing wildlife in their natural environment. “I’m always excited for a new adventure, seeking new country and searching for animals in their prime—hoping to capture the nuances of the outdoor and sporting life and the overall emotional power of a scene.” His passion for the outdoors, of fly fishing, and hunting is apparent in his work.

His work has been exhibited in Africa, New Zealand, and throughout the United States in one-man shows and major art exhibitions hosted by museums such as the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming; the Autry Museum of the American West, Los Angeles, California; and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; the Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma; and the Charlie Russell Museum, Great Falls, Montana.
