Caleb Meyer was born in 1982, in the small mountain town of Hailey, Idaho. As a child, Caleb enjoyed all types of art, but it wasn’t until a painting class in college that he discovered a passion for oil painting. After graduating from Boise State University in 2006, Meyer began an apprenticeship with nationally recognized oil painter, Robert Moore. Meyer compares his time in Moore’s studio to the laying of a strong foundation.“The painting process is like building a house, an artist must understand the principles of design to create a foundation for a strong painting.”
After the two year apprenticeship, Caleb accepted an art teaching job in Twin Falls, Idaho. Determined to continue his dream of being a painter, Meyer set up in his garage and painted on weekends and breaks from school. Soon Caleb began to establish himself as an artist. In 2011, after three years of teaching high school drawing and painting, Meyer left the classroom to pursue painting full time.
His artwork has been featured in Southwest Art,Western Art Collector, American Art Collector, Big Sky Journal and Art & Architecture. Caleb lives with his wife and three children in Missoula, Montana.
