Don Weller

Don Weller drew horses and cowboys and roped calves in high school and college. After graduating from Washington State University, he sold his horses and moved to Los Angeles where he spent decades doing graphic design, illustration and also teaching, first at UCLA and for a decade at the Art Center School in Pasadena. He is a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators.
Finally, realizing he had seen all the cement and palm trees he could stand, he and his family moved to rural Utah. There Don creates western paintings and rides his cutting horses.

His paintings have received many awards including The Jones Award from the Bosque Art Center. He has received the Artists' Choice Award in the Western Artists of America Exhibition, the Best Water Soluble in the Western Art Association, the Steel Dust Award from the AQHA Museum and Hall of Fame, the Best Watercolor and the Patron's Purchase Award at the Bosque Art Center.
He won two Patron's awards at the Traces of the West Show.

He has been honored with some one-man shows including one at Washington State University, and at the Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art, and recently at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum.

He is represented by several galleries.
