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. His formal art training took place 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 environments. “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, 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; the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City; the Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma; and the C.M. Russell Museum, Great Falls, Montana.
