Robert Louis Caldwell

Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Robert Caldwell spent his boyhood years in Verplanck, New York, where he learned to love the outdoors. The Boy Scouts were a conduit to nature for Robert and provided him with some of his most memorable adventures, including 50-mile canoe trips in upstate New York and backpacking in Cimarron, New Mexico.

Robert attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, where he graduated in 2000 with a B.F.A. in Communication Arts. He won several awards in college from Strathmore Artist Papers’ and the Society of Illustrators.

Today, Robert’s passion for art and nature can be seen in his highly detailed, realistic paintings and drawings.

Robert draws inspiration from familiar items. He searches for elements that are often overlooked but that provide opportunities for compelling compositions. Working from his Midlothian, Virginia, studio Robert uses photographic references complemented by field studies, from regional wildlife refuges to the African bush, to compose his drawings and paintings.
