Rock Newcomb (b. 1945)  Artworks >>

Working as a fine artist from a studio in Payson, Arizona, Rock Newcomb does highly realistic Native American pottery still lifes and wildlife subjects, a unique combination and even more so because he has won awards in both categories. In 1999, he was the Region III Award winner of Arts for the Parks competition in Jackson, Wyoming. He has won prizes at "Birds in Art" exhibits at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, and the International Wildlife Art Show in London. He also works in the mediums of scratchboard and graphite Newcomb taught high school art and English in California and Idaho for 27 years and pursued painting then as a sideline. In the late 1990s, he became a full-time artist, earning recognition very quickly for his talents. His wife, Cody, is his business manager, and they have been in three segments of a Public Broadcasting System series called "The Artist's Workshop." Source askart.com
