Dan Logé

Dan Logé has been a full time artist for over 35 years and maintains his studio in Grand Junction, Colorado. His interest in wildlife began early with experiences and observations made while hunting and fishing on the Niagara River in New York State. Those experiences would later manifest as oil paintings of an authentic nature. He considers himself a “painterly realist with an impressionistic leaning”. “With all my work, I am trying to recreate that same excitement that I feel when I’m outdoors watching wildlife behavior.”

In the last few years he has also been working with stone sculpture and finds the medium as challenging and enjoyable as oil painting.

Dan says when he moved out west, "it was like turning a whole new page in my painting career. I began to study big game animals and other western wildlife along with regional landscapes. I'm constantly trying to find new ways of painting the things I see. I simply paint what interest me and there's a lot of beauty out there in nature to take in."

Dan also teaches art at The Grand Junction Art Center and in his studio. His paintings have been recognized by many collectors and publishers throughout the country. His work has appeared on the covers of Ducks Unlimited three times, Cabela’s catalog, and The Long Island Duck Stamp.
