Artist Biography

Carleton McCambridge’s life long dream is to paint and be recognized as a Western Artist. He is diversified in his subject matter from portraits and landscapes to still life and wildlife. 

Formal training for Carleton includes a degree in Art History from the University of Minnesota. He has attended oil painting classes at five premier art schools in the Minneapolis area.  

Carleton and his wife, Liz, reside both in Minneapolis and the mountains southwest of Bozeman, Montana, in a home he designed. He has participated in many exhibitions in both areas.
