*John Moyers

John Moyers was born on August 31, 1958. He grew up in an artistic environment in New Mexico. He counted his father, sculptor and illustrator William Moyers, as his first role-model. The early tutoring and encouragement set the stage for a number of experiences that have given Moyers a desire to paint the beauty and serenity of nature.

Moyers considers 1979 a turning point in his career. John had been working in animation, but decided to devote his career to fine art. He traveled to the Okanagan Game Farm in Pentiction, British Columbia, to study and paint from life. While there, he met the most significant influence in his artistic career, the great Robert Lougheed. He also met the most significant influence in his personal life, his future wife, Terri.

John received the Robert Lougheed Memorial Award at the 2003 Prix de West show. In January 2004 he and Terri were among thirteen Prix de West artists whose work was featured at the Forbes’ Galleries in New York City. He participated in a Three Artist Show also at Forbes Gallery, along with his wife Terri, and good friend Curt Walters in November 2011.

John was a member of Cowboy Artists of America for sixteen years. While a member, he won numerous awards including seven Best of Show and four Cowboy Artist awards.

Galleries representing Moyers’ work include Nedra MatteucciGallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, Arizona and Wood River Fine Art in Ketchum, Idaho.
