Caleb Meyer was born in 1982 in the small mountain town of Hailey, Idaho. As a child, Caleb enjoyed all types of art, but it wasn’t until a painting class in college that he discovered a passion for oil painting. After graduating from Boise State University in 2006, Meyer began an apprenticeship with nationally recognized oil painter, Robert Moore. Meyer compares his time in Moore’s studio to the laying of a strong foundation.
After a two year apprenticeship, Caleb accepted an art teaching job in Twin Falls, Idaho. He was determined to continue his dream of being a painter, so he set up in his garage and painted on weekends and breaks from school. Slowly Caleb’s own style began to emerge as he established himself as a professional artist. In 2011, after three years of teaching high school drawing and painting, Meyer left the classroom to pursue painting full time.
Meyer’s artwork has been featured in Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, Big Sky Journal, and Art & Architecture. Caleb lives with his wife and three children in Missoula, Montana.
The painting process is like building a house, a painter must understand the principles of design to create a foundation for a strong painting.
