Art WorkMr. Mott

Naturalist artist, my work is my own creation my own style. Although I don’t feel that I have been greatly influenced by any one artist, there are always other artists we admire and inevitable reflect in our work.

Early Life

Wisconsin born, I moved to South Dakota as a young boy and enjoy this state’s rich hunting and outdoor heritage. As a young man I enjoyed hunting with my father and learned an extensive love and knowledge of nature through his teachings.


As a young artist I attended South Dakota State University, Dakota State University, and graduated courses through University of South Dakota. I also was fortunate to study Art Restoration, Museum Studies, Art history and several other art areas through the royal Museum of Art in London England.


I am still a working artist and am also a high school Art teacher at Dell Rapids Public School
I continue to hunt fish and enjoy the outdoors with m son, Tanner, every chance I get.
