David Maynard received his Bachelor of Fine Art from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio in 1981 with a concentration in commercial art. In 1984 David and his wife Cathy moved to Idaho where he developed a deep appreciation for wildlife art painting. While living in Salmon, Idaho he became friends with renowned wildlife artist Barbara Peets and learn many techniques from her. His primary themes are waterfowl and landscapes in an impressionist style. His most recent works have combined abstract expressionism with wildlife art. David currently works fulltime as a camp director for kids and uses much of his creativity in the camp programs for kids. Art is still his passion and finds time on occasion to paint.
