Tyler Crow grew up in the small town of Apache, Oklahoma. A 2007 graduate of Apache High School, he always had paper and pencil with him drawing horses. During his senior year, he entered a pencil drawing in the Oklahoma Youth Expo at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Winning reserve Best of Show and a scholarship enabled him to attend a summer painting workshop co-taught by Bruce Greene and Martin Grelle, where he held a paintbrush for the first time. Tyler has since attended three more Greene and Grelle-taught workshops and another taught by Greene at the Scottsdale Artists School in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In two recent shows, Bosque Arts Classic and “Small Works Great Wonder”, Tyler received the People’s Choice award. He plans to continue studying art and work toward a career as a Western artist.
