Artist Andrew Knudson is a born and raised North Dakotan, and his strong roots and love of the northern plains reflect strongly in his artwork. From modern working cowboys to a vast array of wildlife, Andrew is a part of each drawing and painting he completes. And like most award winning artists, Andrew works from experience. He is a former Champion Rodeo Cowboy and is now an avid outdoorsman, taking all of his unique experience to heart to someday transpose them to paper or canvas.
"My most popular work for the past several years has been my oil paintings on turkey feathers. They are hand-painted with small, soft brushes, then matted and framed under glass to ensure their longevity. They are primarily wildlife images, but I paint anything on a feather by request. Past custom feather paintings have included portraits, cars, buildings, rodeo images, and a lot of dogs. They start with 8X10s priced at $100 and go up from there in size and price to full tail fans." Each piece is an original, and all are signed and numbered #1 of 1."
Andrew works out of his "Plains Perspective Studio/Gallery" in Scandia, MN.
