Jeff Walker was born and raised in Great Falls and makes Fort Shaw his home and studio. He received a degree from Montana State University and did grad work at Eastern Montana College after a stint in the Army. Walker has been a long time participant in the CM Russell Auction, both as an artist juried into the competition and as an exhibitor.
Inspired by prints of Audubon, the mediums of etching and watercolor soon became united under Jeff's touch in small edition etching prints, pulled by hand, then watercolored individually. This gradually gave way to an interest in oil painting. Jeff is a naturalist in heart and spirit. The Montana landscape endures as his principal inspiration.
