Learn about our artists

2016 Featured Artist: Rock Newcomb

Rock Newcomb developed a love of nature and the natural world while growing up on a ranch in southern Idaho. He began drawing at age 5 and went on to receive advanced degrees in art as an adult and taught art prior to becoming a full-time fine artist. Rock now lives in Arizona and paints southwest still life’s, landscapes, and wildlife.

Rock paints with acrylics on a very smooth surface called clayboard which allows him the fine detail he achieves in his work. His subjects have recently been narrowed to two central themes: historical and prehistorical artifacts or wildlife. Most still life paintings of artifacts are accompanied by a statement of history and context, giving Rock’s work even more interest and depth. His work can be found in several fine galleries, invitational juried exhibits and private collections. He is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists, Wildlife Artists Associates, and International Society of Acrylic Painters.
