Todd Telander Biography

Art and the study of nature have been dual passions for Todd Telander since his childhood in rural Northern California. He began to seriously focus on art as a career while attending the University of California at Santa Cruz. While earning degrees in Environmental Studies and Biology, he completed a graduate-level program in scientific illustration, and immediately began work as a freelance artist on a national and international level. He has since studied fine art independently in several western states and was awarded an artist's residency at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. For the past twenty years he has made his living as a freelance artist.

His recent work involves the western landscape in oils in a tonalist style with careful attention to texture and surface.
