Virginia artist Guy Crittenden paints scenes from his own experiences in nature. Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay in Glouster, Virginia, the young artist found opportunities to observe an abundance of wildlife in this natural environment. At the age of 13, he discovered oil paints and soon began to capture those outdoor experiences on canvas. "Painting gave me an ability to capture and relive those experiences in the wild."
Guy's popularity grew as an artist, but he had other interests as well. While attending The College of William and Mary, Guy was a standout defensive player on the Football Team. After graduating with a Business Degree, he pursued his interest in art and attended The Art Institute of Atlanta.
Guy is now exhibiting his oil paintings at some of the most prestigious art shows in the country. Guy has done work for the National Wildlife Federation, The Sierra Club, and the USGA. He was chosen as the 1993, 1994, and 1996 Virginia Ducks Unlimited "Artist of the Year."
Guy currently lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife Melanie and three children, Linday, Alexis, and Mellie. He owns and operates a design firm named Digital Production, Inc. Guy spends his spare time exploring the waterways and countryside in search of subjects for paintings. He continues to publish his own limited edition prints in Richmond, Virginia.
