Welcome to Mike Childress Art
I'm a sixth generation Texan and I've been producing wildlife art for 40 years, using the basic skills I learned in my chemical engineering studies at Texas A&M many years ago.
Over the ensuing years, I've been very fortunate to have received commissions from numerous corporations, wildlife organizations and individuals. Each year since 1998, I have been selected to provide an original pen and ink of the highest scoring animals harvested under the rules of the Texas Big Game Awards.
The art I create is meticulously produced in great detail to show the unique qualities of the subject. My experiences in and love for the outdoors, while hunting, fishing, or photographing in the field, give me a unique perspective and knowledge to draw my subject in its native habitat.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Each pen and ink rendition takes me weeks to complete and is comprised of thousands of pen strokes.
