About Ken Carlson

Ken Carlson was born and raised in Minnesota and now resides in the hill country of central Texas. Following art school training, he began his career as a commercial illustrator. In 1968, he put aside commercial work to devote full time to wildlife subjects. A critical element of Carlson’s work has always been first-hand observation of wildlife subjects. Each fall, he travels to Alaska, the western prairies, the Canadian Rockies, or to Africa to study animal subjects in their varied habitat.

Artist Statement

With a length of over five feet and a wingspan of more than seven feet, trumpeter swans are a breathtaking sight. For visitors to Jackson Hole, the trumpeter is a most desired sighting while exploring the area. In Trumpeter Morning, the soft lighting enhances a moody morning before the early sun evaporates the mist.

We went here because one of our kids wasn't feeling too well so we looked for options that were softer than trekking (summers) , and we absolutely loved it . The art work is fascinating and beautiful and varied ...a must visit - esp if its a rainy day :)
