Fred Boyer is an internationally acclaimed artist whose impressive wildlife bronzes grace the homes of former president George W. Bush and General Norman Schwarzkopf, as well as galleries and shows around the world. His awards include International Safari Club’s Featured Artist for 2013, the first time a sculptor has been chosen. He achieved Calgary Stampede Artist’s Choice in 2009, Wild Wing’s People’s Choice and Artist’s Best of Show in 2007 through 2009.
After teaching art in Alaska, then his native Montana for fifteen years, Boyer dedicated himself entirely to sculpting. His experience as a hunting guide, smokejumper and firefighter helped him gain an understanding of animal behavior.
This combination of education and experience enhanced his creative talent. The results were remarkable and are evident in the Wildlife, Sporting and African Safari bronzes which he has masterfully depicted with rare precision and minute detail, right down to the intensity of a cape buffalo’s stare.
Throughout an impressive 38 year career as an artist, Boyer has maintained his affiliation with Safari Club International, The Wild Sheep Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, Trout Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Pheasants Forever. Through his artwork, he has raised substantial funds for their global conservation efforts.
Fred Boyer’s research of animals and birds has taken him around the world and he plans yet another adventure to Africa in the near future. Wherever his passion for wildlife leads him, he continues to capture the moment in beautiful bronze.
