Arthur Herring is an award-winning American painter of oils and pastels. Since his years as a child he has explored his natural surroundings from the beaches of the Potomac River in Virginia, to the Rocky Mountains of the West, in the USA. Through the years of his natural wanderings he has taken a more spiritual turn and tone in his works. This tone, or visual style leads one towards the source of nature.
Self-taught, with natural influences from his mother who is also an award-winning painter, he has developed his skill in many forms of presentation. Spanning his career, his captivating landscapes grew to include lush detailed spiritual and cosmic fantasy. Always seeking new ways of expression, he developed a dynamic yet subtle approach to pastels he calls "scribbilism", which captures his viewers in the spiritual side of nature. During the 2000's he was also able to make a name for himself as a large-scale Muralist painting various subject matter from the states to Russia. His traditional paintings hang in private collections in Norway, UK, Bulgaria, Russia and USA.
In later years he has produced illustrative work in digital format, using art software as he continues in his interest of nature-based fantasy. This has led to him also producing freelance design and illustrative work for clients from a various spectrum. In 2017 he began to work with his wife to make a video story book, a story she wrote years prior. During the process of the project, it has evolved into a full-length animated film. "This has been an unexpected turn, but it is spontaneous and is telling of how much more interesting it is to add the element of time to art. It's absolutely fascinating to work with, and tons of fun." Arthur looks forward to using more animation mixed with his art background in years to come.
