2018 Waterfowl Stamp
"Colorado Ring-necked Ducks"
by Dan Andrews
About the Artist
As a native Coloradan, wildlife artist Dan Andrews learned about Rocky Mountain wildlife by spending many hours in the field. "I strive to make each painting an emotional statement about a particular animal's nature," said Andrews.
Andrews graduated from Colorado Institute of Art and has attended workshops conducted by Robert Bateman, Carl Brenders and other prominent wildlife artists. His work has been exhibited at many national and local art shows and recent awards include 1st place in the 2015 and 2nd place in the 2014 Wyoming Conservation Stamp Contest and Best of Show and People's Choice awards at the 2017 and 2018 Saratoga Fine Arts Festival. He is also the 1993 Colorado Waterfowl Stamp winner.
Andrews has been a member of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society, Foundation of North American Wild Sheep, National Wildlife Federation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. He hopes his paintings encourage others to support wildlife and habitat conservation efforts.
