Duke Beardsley


beardsleyA sixth generation Coloradan, Duke Beardsley has been drawing and painting the American west for as long as he can remember. Raised both in Denver, and on a 1000 acre cattle ranch in eastern Colorado. Duke’s “duel” upbringing is the foundation for his unique blend of tradition western iconography and modern art sensibilities. An unapologetic fan of all “things cowboy” Duke spends as much time on horseback as possible. Joining his many friends and family on some of the West’s great ranches, Duke rides with the crews to participate and observe today working cowboys and cowgirls in their element. Formally trained at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Duke now lives and works with his wife and two daughters in Denver.
