The Artist

""Nature is naturally inspiring. It is medicine for the soul. Nature is part of each of us whether we embrace it or not. As a wildlife artist, my goal is to touch a part of the soul that only nature can achieve. Something real, something organic and something that touches the heart." "

Jerry Ragg is a life-long artist. Growing up in Minnesota and visiting art galleries with his mom when he was young, he was inspired by wildlife art. After completing his first oil painting of a buck in the grass at age 7, his natural artistic ability was discovered.

Being a self-taught artist, he’s spent his life studying, photographing nature and in the field gathering research. “Every time I pick up a paint brush, I grow. I feel as an artist you never stop growing.”
