Largely a self-taught artist, Glenn Dean’s childhood interest in art developed into a love of painting landscapes. Inspired by earlier artists such as Edgar Payne and Maynard Dixon, he enjoys capturing the perfect figure within the forefront of his landscapes. Painting on-location throughout the Southwest, Glenn creates field studies from his time in the deserts, mountains, and coastal regions in order to paint larger pieces while working from his studio on the central coast of California.

As a third generation artist, Josh Elliott was raised to appreciate art. From an early age, he was encouraged to pursue the importance of painting life from the great outdoors and considers his landscape paintings a reaction to the scenery surrounding him. Josh keeps a grasp on reality while painting, however, he also strives to create art that is interpretive to the viewer and more than a good rendering.

Known for his figures and landscape paintings, Logan draws inspiration from subjects of Southern California, landscapes of the American Southwest and the Northeast Coast. Logan believes that the evolution of art is never ending, thus he is always challenging himself with new ideas and different perspectives.
