With more than 30 years of painting
providing the inspiration and experiences that have gone into perfecting
his exceptional artistic style, Don Kloetzke has developed a unique
talent for capturing the beauty and splendor of wildlife, and for
recreating the mystique of the deep woods. While best known for
his wildlife art, Don also paints landscapes, still life and World
War II aircraft.
Don grew up traveling with his family and living
in places where his father was stationed with the U.S. Air Force.
As they traveled through Hawaii, Mississippi, California,
Germany and other places, he sharpened
his drawing and painting skills. Now recognized as one of the finest
wildlife artists in the country, Don's skill as an artist is also
matched by an equally impressive talent as a musician, composer,
vocalist and recording star.
Don's work has been accepted by the prestigious
Leigh Yawkey Woodson Birds in Art Exhibition, an international invitational
show. He has also donated his art to dozens of organizations dedicated
to conservation and the preservation of wildlife.
