About the Artist
Growing up on the banks of Chesapeake Bay in Gloucester, Virginia, Guy Crittenden found a close connection to the natural world at an early age and began to draw and paint from his experiences in nature. His curiosity about animal behavior, coupled with his God-given ability to illustrate, evolved into a lifelong passion and a 40-year collection of nature and sporting art. He is a naturalist with a particular interest in ornithology, which helps him create authentic and accurate portrayals of the subjects he puts to canvas.
Guy is a five-time winner of the Virginia Duck Stamp competition with wins in 2005, 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2015, and has recent Duck Stamp wins in Louisiana, North Carolina, Michigan, Connecticut and Oklahoma.
Guy is also known for his landscapes and sporting art and his work is displayed at Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, Virginia and the Warm Springs Gallery in Bath County, Virginia.
