About the Artist

Wade Butler painted Texas wildlife and landscapes for  over 20 years. But his art career did not begin until he was almost forty years old after fifteen years as a fisheries biologist for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. "I quit my job cold turkey back in 1984 with no prior art training or experience. My wife was going back to work as a teacher after laying out a few years and with two daughters, nine and four years old, we thought one of us should be at home for them. So she let me start a new career if I would also serve as 'Mr. Mom' when they came home after school." Now, over three decades, Wade Butler has made his mark in the sporting and wildlife art world. He hasbeen an exhibitor in some of the most prestigious wildlife art shown in the United States including the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in Charleston, South Carolina, the Ducks Unlimited Wildlife Show in Kansas City, Missouri, and the Oklahoma Wildlife Show in Tulsa.

Butler produced work in water mixable oils, gouache, graphite pencil and bronze. His work has appeared on covers of Texas Outdoors Journal magazine and Ducks Unlimited Fine Art T-shirts nationally. His work is also seen frequently at Texas Coastal Conservation Association banquets and auctions where his saltwater fishing and sporting scenes are sought by collectors. His original paintings and prints are used by Ducks Unlimited, Coastal Conservation Association, Quail Unlimited , National Elk Foundation and many charity organizations in fund raising efforts. He was the Texas Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year in 1998-99 and the Sponsor Print Artist in  1995-96, 2005-06 and again in 2010-11.  Butler signed prints have been carried by some of the largest sporting chain stores in the nation such as Cabela's, Sportsmen's Warehouse and Academy Sports & Outdoors.

In September of 2014, Wade Butler passed away after a hard battle with Pancreatic Cancer. His final wishes were for his wife and two daughters to continue on with his business. His family continues to show his work at various showings throughout the year and also out of his studio in San Marcos by appointment.
