Raised on a small farmoutside of St. Paul, Minnesota, Smith's family moved to themountains of Wyoming when he was 12 years old. Unlike many of hiscontemporaries, Smith did not set out to be an artist. Drawing wasa pastime when he was a child, and as an adult, he viewed it merelyas an avocation. He graduated from the University of Wyoming in1963, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in math and a minor in art,and spent eight years as a computer programmer and systems analystfor the State of Montana. He thought he might retire about the ageof forty and then pursue a career in art.
The desire to paint full time took over, however, and by the age of31, Smith began to paint professionally full time. Much of Smith'sapproach to painting centers on light, and this element alone iswhat gives Smith's scenes their pastoral flavor.
Today, Tucker Smith is nationally renowned for his balanced, subtlepaintings inspired by the wildlife and mountain atmosphere that hasbeen such an integral part of his life. His home and studio on theHoback Rim in Western Wyoming offers direct access to his favoritesubjects; vast landscapes, sprawling cattle ranches, and the backcountry with its abundant wildlife and natural, unspoiledbeauty.
Tucker Smith's paintings are in the permanent collection of theNational Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming and theNational Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City,Oklahoma. His many awards include the 1990 Prix De West Purchaseaward and the 1996 Robert Lougheed Award. In 1999, he won theThomas Moran Gold Medal at the Masters of the American WestExhibition at the Autry Museum, and the Autry Purchase Award in2000. Tucker is an annual participant at the Masters of theAmerican West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale where, in 2007, he wonthe Trustees' Purchase Award, given in recognition of artworkdesignated for purchase by the Autry National Center.
