Chad Poppleton

Chad Poppleton has been passionate about art and the outdoors for as long as he can remember. He studied at Utah State University under the direction of Glen Edwards and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in fine art and illustration. Poppleton continues to study the classical tradition of the impressionists and Renaissance masters.

In 2018, Poppleton achieved a lifelong dream when he was inducted into the Cowboy Artists of America. He has been profiled in Sporting ClassicsArt of the West, Western Art Collector, and Southwest Art Magazine. He is a member of the C. M. Russell Museum’s Skull Society of Artists. Poppleton exhibits at the Charlie Russell Museum, National Museum of Wildlife Art, Scottsdale Art Auction, and Jackson Hole Art Auction. He also supports many local art clubs and conservation efforts in his region.

One of Poppleton’s proudest accomplishments was earning the Bob Kuhn Wildlife Award from the National Museum of Wildlife Art. “As an artist, my objective is to represent the subjects of wildlife correctly and accurately to the best of my ability. It’s critically important for me to pick up each little difference in nature and portray that in the canvas to engage the viewer emotionally within the piece.” An avid sportsman and conservationist, Poppleton spends as much time in the field as he does at the easel. His paintings are a reflection of his love for animals, wilderness areas, and the great outdoors.
