Les Didier -
Original works by wildlife artist Les Didier have been in demand for more than 30 years. An Ohio native and Dayton Art Institute graduate, Didier established his commercial art business in Milwaukee in 1957. Wisconsin lakes and woods have since become his second studio. In 1986 Didier was named Artist of the Year by WMVS-TV, the public television station in Milwaukee. His work was selected for the Leigh Yawkey Woodsonï¿½s "Birds in Art" Show for four consecutive years. In 1995 he won the Wisconsin Duck Stamp competition.
Didier sees his completed work as a blending of the imagery of mind and senses. "The eyes sees more than the camera can record or field sketch contain. One must absorb the sounds and smells and solitude of the outdoors to allow the inner eye to more fully understand. It is this imagery of mind and senses that most fascinates me and what I attempt to capture and combine with the reality of the species. For me, one element without the other results in an incomplete statement."
