About Denny Karchner

Denny Karchner's 'Western Artwork' was spawned from a deep passion for the love of a pencil and paint at a very young age. He has been producing 'pencils' since the tender age of three-years-old and after a 34-year hiatus, has recently returned to paints. Here, you will find the newest in a series in oils, acrylics and pencils. It is Denny's tightest and most intense works ever.'

Denny's passion and love for 'pencil and paints' are gaining him increased notoriety among museums and private collectors. Over the last few years, Denny has worked closely with the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody and has had art included in their Annual Art Auctions. In the Fall of 2005, Denny had two pieces accepted into the prestigious 'Booth Western Art Museum' for their permanent private collection. Those pieces are 'Horse Capture' and 'Chief Tosh~A~Wah.' Just recently, the family of the late, great Curt Gowdy commissioned Denny to paint his portrait. Lastly, Denny has just been hired by the Rooney family, owners of the 2005 NFL Superbowl Champions Pittsburgh Steelers to paint many of the old Steelers from the 1970's Super Bowl Teams. What an honor for a 'Lifetime Fan' and former resident of 'The Steel City.'

Artist Statement:

This 'portfolio' actually consists of a lifetime of work. Only I can know that my closest family members have sacrificed many, many things through out my lifetime to get me where I am today. Everything from 'sacrificing' that 'favorite pencil' to draw with as I sat in church at the age-of-three. To those closest to me 'going without' while I was attending art school. To not having my time and attention when I thought that running a company was more important. To making life-altering moves that helped an art career elevate to another level. The sacrifices from that pencil at the age-of-three to where I sit now in my life are countless. But not once did anyone of them ever try to discourage me from going down that artistic path to success.

As a client or buyer, I want you to know where the talent and determination originated. You need to know with whom you are dealing. I am a man, made early on in life by all those who surrounded me on up to the fellow artists that I create with this day. Almost everyone that I have had contact with in my life has left their mark. More good ones than bad. They both teach. My family and friends have instilled an ethic of honesty and trust that I use everyday as an artist and as a person.

Lastly, I dedicate all my art to my children, Lindsay, Hillary and Dillon. Each one, so gifted and talented. They are by far my greatest creations ever. Also to my wife Leigh, who made life-altering moves that helped an art career elevate to another level. For it was they who sacrificed all that time and attention when I thought it was for a better future. Little did I know that the future was the next minute of a day when I could have, should have but didn't. Nevertheless, I know they still love me and I just want them to be proud of me. It is they who inspire me to go on striving to improve my art skills as well as myself in every single piece that I create. I thank God everyday for them and all the others here and the ones who have gone before me, who made me what I am. May God bless each and everyone.
