Terry Redlin


Terry RedlinTerry Redlin was born in 1937 on a farm at the end of the Depression. At school he'd be found day dreaming about the great outdoors and at a young age had his heart set on becoming a forest ranger.

That all changed when he lost his leg in a motorcycle accident and with his dream out of sight, he turned to his next passion – art. Fast forward a few years and he earned a degree from St. Paul School of Associated Arts and spent 25 years working in commercial art.

It wasn't until he was 40 Redlin's "Winter Snows" appeared on the cover of The Farmer magazine. Since then, he quit his job and solely focused on his paintings. He went on and won several stamp competitions, he had been honored as Artist of the Year for Ducks Unlimited and as a Conservationist of the Year-Magnum Donor by Minnesota Waterfowl Association. Throughout his career, Redlin painted wildlife and outdoor scenes and in the 1990s he was named American's most popular artist.

Redlin's depictions of ducks, deer and rustic cabins have decorated everything from stationery items to coffee mugs as they portray a serene outdoor landscape.
