Luke Frazier Biography

Born in Provo, Utah, and raised in the Salt Lake City area, Luke spent countless hours sketching and sculpting wildlife during his childhood. He studied engineering at Dixie College before pursuing art at Utah State University—where he earned a bachelor’s degree in painting and then a master’s degree in illustration. But even before he graduated, he was exploring the world of professional fine art. Frazier won his first art competition as a college freshman and then claimed the Grand Prize Sweepstakes at the 1991 Alpine Arts Festival. On an impulsive trip to New York, the twenty-one year-old Frazier secured illustration work at three of the industry’s top publications: Reader’s Digest, Field & Stream and Alaska magazines. With that encouragement, Frazier moved ahead with enthusiasm. Since then, Frazier’s first one-man exhibition sold out on opening night, he has had more than a dozen pieces chosen for the prestigious Arts for the Parks annual Top 100 (three picked the very first year he entered the competition) and he went on to win the National Parks Wildlife Award in 1994, 1996 and 1997. When he isn’t spending eight hours a day, five days a week oil painting, experimenting with acrylics, etching or sculpting in his studio, Frazier takes great pleasure in painting on location, traveling, exploring, fly fishing, hiking and doing field studies. “My paintings are meant to create a mood, evoke an emotion, tell a story or ask a question,” he says. “Experiencing the outdoors and having a chance to see these elusive creatures is amazing and I want to share that with others. When you see one of my paintings and feel like you’ve been there and witnessed what I’m depicting, I will have succeeded.”
