Bucky is a full time artist who grew up camping, hunting and fishing in Southwest Georgia. As the son of a photographer and avid fisherman he was exposed to the beauty of nature and the challenges of the sporting life as a young boy. He enjoyed the art of Bob Kuhn, Ogden Pleissner, A. L. Ripley and others that were in the sporting magazines of the time. Bucky’s paintings reflect his continuing love and appreciation for nature and outdoor life and his many hunting and fishing experiences. Although Sporting Art, primarily bird hunting and fly-fishing, is his passion he paints oils and watercolors of other subject matter ranging from marsh and low country landscapes to dogs and waterscapes.
