Doug working on a painting that can be seen at the 1880 Town on I-90 near Murdo, SD
Doug Krogman was raised, along with his six siblings, on his family's ranch just west of White River, South Dakota.  He married his high school sweetheart, Naomi, and has lived in Wyoming since 1974.
Doug started painting as a hobby over forty years ago.  Although he has captured a variety of images, from wildlife to family portraits, his specialty springs from his heart and home place: western.
Doug's father Clarence passed away in 2014 at the age of 103.  His brothers Richard, Cliff, and Blaine, still live on, and run, the family ranch, raising cattle and quarter horses.  Conveniently, Doug is easily inspired by the images from "back home" and has captured a multitude of photographs which have become springboards for several paintings.  A storyteller at heart, Doug captures moments in time from the rural west and masterfully translates them into works of art.
