Mike Capron was born January 19, 1945. Mikeʼs art is a product of studying with many artists, correspondence courses, seminars, books, videos and constant practice. He is living his art and constantly working to better illustrate his experiences. He and his wife Anne have lived and worked on ranches in West Texas since he was honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corp in 1968. Blending his family, life, religion and art into a daily practice has sent him many chances to share his art in books, magazines, art shows, museums, galleries, private collections and any place where common interest might shine. Mike was recently featured in the Western Horseman, October 2009,and his latest award has a best of show at the Trappings of Texas sponsored by the Museum of the Big Bend.
