Through Lyman’s art, you can travel into a wilderness very few have experienced. You can share the sensation of being in the true outdoors by exploring, discovering, studying, and enjoying the all encompassing beauty of unspoiled nature.
Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His work was inspired by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. His love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
Lyman’s desire to share his admiration for the outdoors was strong, but he enrolled in the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California, to learn more about the commercial art field. He started his career as a commercial illustrator in Los Angeles. Returning to Idaho, he spent two years exploring and developing his own style of painting. He continued to discover the wonders of the natural world and of living a natural lifestyle.
Lyman actively shared the wonder of the natural world with a legion of collectors until his untimely death in 1996. He had been recently named one of the top artists in the country by U.S. Art magazine in 1995.
