Jeffrey H. Craven lives along the Snake River near Ririe, Idaho with his wife Nancy. He attended Idaho State University in Fine Art and worked at the National Engineering Laboratory as an illustrator before moving to full-time professional artist in 1979. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and the rural nostalgia of the Snake River Valley reflect in his meticulous watercolors. Growing up in the valleys on the Idaho side of the Tetons provided a wealth of material for him to draw from.
His many accomplishments include works that hang in the Great Hall of the Smithsonian, Arts for the Parks Top 100; and favorable reviews by the New York Times and ArtSpeaks Magazine. He’s a member of the American Indian and Cowboys Artists Association, and participates in miniature shows. His watercolors can be found in collections throughout the United States and Europe.
