Tom Lybeck

Colorado Wildlife Artist

Originally from Fargo, North Dakota, I settled in Denver, Colorado, in the early 1970s. I’m a graduate of the University of North Dakota, with a BA in Fine Arts. I retired from a career in the electrical industry, and now pursue full-time my passion for painting. Each painting tells a story about somewhere I have been or an experience I have had. Enjoy my journey.

Celebrating Colorado’s Wildlife and Wild Places

I refer to my artistic style as American traditional realism. It incorporates a distinctive “palette knife” technique and vibrant color palette, honed over the years. A selection of my original oil paintings, giclée prints, and note cards can be found at the Majestic Gallery in Idaho Springs, CO and River Canyon Gallery in Bailey, CO. My work has been included in a number of regional art shows and I have won several awards including Best Drawing at the Western Art Rendezvous, and the William E. Snyder Award at the Gilpin Arts Annual.
