Robert McCauley was born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Washington. His artwork is influenced by the cultures of the Pacific Northwest, and his paintings contain contemporary messages, either spelled out in text on the frames or implied through the disparate juxtapositions in the work itself, concerning humanity's relationship to the environment and animals. Currently, he teaches at Rockford College in Illinois and is chair of the art department. Throughout his career, McCauley has earned many prestigious awards including fellowships from the National Endowment fo the Arts in 1982 and the Illinois Arts Council in 1999. Solo exhibitions include the Rockford Art Museum, Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Palo Alto Art Center, and numerous galleries and universitites around the country.
