Growing up on a ranch in Southern Idaho, Rock Newcomb developed a love of nature and the natural world. He began drawing at age 5 and went on to receive advanced degrees in art and teach art prior to becoming a full time fine artist. Rock is now Arizona based, and paints southwest still lifes, landscapes, and wildlife.
Rock Newcomb's 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.
Rock Newcomb 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.
We at the Big Horn Galleries are proud to represent the fine work of Rock Newcomb and hope you will consider his work for your collection.
