FEATURED ARTIST

Lyle Hebel

Lyle Hebel comes from a family of artists and makers. His mom is a cowboy western folk artist. His late grandmother was a painter and his uncle is a saddle maker. Making art is in his blood.

Drawing always came quickly to him, and there was no shortage of things to draw while growing up on ranches in Montana and Wyoming.

“In the first 18 years, I bet I drew more horses than CM Russell painted his entire life,” Hebel boasts. “I was always drawing in a sketchbook, in the margins of textbooks, napkins at restaurants, basically if there was a blank space and I had a pen, I would draw on it. On the rare times I wasn't drawing, you could find me shooting my rifle or longbow around our ranch and exploring new country with my brother and friends.”

"For as long as I can remember, I have drawn."

Hunting was essential to Hebel’s family growing up. The animals they harvested provided food, the trips into the mountains provided entertainment and allowed them to bond and create memories he still has to this day. His family spent many days in the field rifle hunting for elk and deer. Today, however, he considers antelope his favorite game to pursue.

“I didn't harvest my first antelope until I was 19 years old,” Hebel explains. “I also didn't start bowhunting until I was 19. The second animal I collected with a bow was a mature antelope buck that I spot-and-stalked in a hayfield. From that day on I was hooked on antelope. If given a choice to hunt one species for the rest of my life, antelope would be it.”

Hebel’s work often conjures timeless themes reimagined from a modern perspective, which is reflected in his artistic process.

“I am a firm believer in the ‘less is more’ thought process and feel that sometimes the best line an artist can make is the one you don't draw.”

"So, I will leave small gaps in lines and allow the viewer to fill them in. Once the foundation of the drawing is complete, I circle back and add the little details that complete the piece."

For Hebel, finding his own vision is the most transcendental and rewarding experience as an artist.

“All my work before college was trying to create art in the manner of other artists, which is a great way to learn technique, but it doesn't make you a great artist. Finding your style and putting your mark on something…that is a fantastic feeling.”

"I find it hard to make art that doesn't draw from real experiences I’ve had in the field, and I love sharing these experiences and telling an entire story through one single image."
