Collection: John Fawcett

John Fawcett was born in 1952 and grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Although his family lived in town, they kept horses nearby. In tandem with his passion for horses was a desire to draw and paint. He studied pre-veterinary medicine at the University of New Hampshire and received his doctorate at Iowa State University in 1978. He opened up his own veterinary practice in 1980 in Pennsylvania where he practiced for the next 20 years. As his practice grew to a total of 5 veterinarians, his passion for art grew as well, and he sold his practice in 1996 to paint full time and pursue his dream.

Since taking the leap of faith to become an artist, he has been invited to participate in some of the most prestigious Western art shows in the country and has developed relationships with the top galleries. He has shown his work at the Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum where he won the watercolor award four times and the Quest for the West at the Eiteljorg Museum, where he won the Harrison Eiteljorg Museum Purchase Award in 2021. John won the Gene Autry Memorial Award at the Masters of the American West in 2023.

He has been featured in Western Art Collector, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Western Horseman, Cowboys & Indians, The Equine Image, Inform Art, and US Art.

He and his wife Elizabeth, their two Labrador Retrievers, and two Quarter Horses divide their time between a farm in southern Pennsylvania and a ranch in northern Colorado.
