Ed Anderson started his artistic life early growing up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His mother’s influence crafted a passion readily apparent through his education. After completing the Advanced Art program at St. Thomas Academy, he went on to study Art and Architecture at the University of Minnesota.

After earning a degree, Ed served honorably as an officer in the United States Air Force at Mountain Home AFB in Southwest Idaho. He fell in love with the West immediately and soon met his wife Rebecca, a proud Vandal. Their life will forever be cabled to the Gem state.

Most days you can find Ed in his home studio overlooking the Boise River on the eastern edge of town. It is an experience. You can usually find him painting to blaring music or beating the strings on an acoustic guitar. Probably you’ll catch spirited twin daughters running in an out. In fact, if you do visit and it’s quiet, it probably means he’s off somewhere exploring in his Jackson kayak with his Boykin Spaniel, Mootie.

Ed strives to catalogue Americana. His subjects are derived from vast experience in the outdoors, where Ed spends much of his time. Additionally, his extensive travel pushes him to investigate things unique to his country. Today he may be working on a landscape at his No Business Lodge, or be on the flats in Florida trying to chase down a Tarpon for a photo. Tomorrow he could be in the chutes trying to sketch the moment a bull tears out with a rider on his back. Then again, you could find him in the mountains, bugling in an elk to 25 yards. No Matter where he may be, Ed is trying to capture his experience with his gestural style.

Ed is a featured cover artist and contributor for Gray’s Sporting Journal and is a featured artist with the Bonefish Tarpon Trust and the Pro Bull Riding Tour. Additionally, he is exploring options with Texas Parks and Wildlife and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. His work can regularly be seen at the Fulton Street Showroom, Boise, Saddletree Gallery, Ketchum and The Frying Pan Gallery in Cape Cod. And, Ed tours his art appearing at Art Festivals and Sporting Expos around the country.
