George Northup

1940 -
Origin: United States
Born: 1940, Minnesota

After growing up in Minnesota, George Northup worked as a pharmaceutical salesman in Chicago. He and his wife moved to Jackson, Wyoming, in the fall of 1967 in order to raise their family and remain there today. After arriving in Jackson, Northup worked various jobs, such as river rafting guide, plumber, bar and restaurant manager, building contractor, ski instructor, and cook, in order to pay bills. As a rafting guide on the Snake River, he came into contact with several wildlife artists, which fostered an interest in art he had had since childhood. In 1970, Northup took a local fine art casting class offered by Joe Shellenberger, working as the artist's assistant as he did not have money for tuition. Since then, he has continued to create sculptural works of animals and people.
