Born in Minnesota and raised in Bozeman, Montana, Adam Smith has spent thirty-four years surrounded by the incredible wonders of Western wildlife and has mastered the art of its accurate rendering. Smith studies nature with the acute eye of a scientist, yet recreates it with the gingerly hands of a painter. He is no stranger to fine art, as he is the son of famous wildlife artist Daniel Smith. Make no mistake, however—this young artist sets himself apart from the competition and has already garnered much success in the art world. An avid traveler and cross-country explorer, Smith finds inspiration in trips he and his father have taken to Africa, Alaska, Utah, and dozens of national parks in between.
Smith has been the recipient of the 2015 People’s Choice Award at Western Visions, National Museum of Wildlife Art; the 2016 Henry Farny Award for Best Painting at Quest for the West, Eiteljorg Museum; and the 2017 Cynthia Post Buyers Choice Award at Small Works, Great Wonders, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
