In Your Face Action / The Art of Michael Dustin
Michael Dustin, a local artist, creates “in your face, rodeo action” artwork for the Eagle Rodeo. Not only does his annual creation become the face of our event for that year, it also becomes a limited edition commemorative poster. Posters can be found at the Eagle Rodeo office.
Michael Dustin was raised in a small logging and farming community in Central Idaho. It was there that he discovered his love of the great outdoors and wildlife. Many of those wilderness experiences soon found their way onto his canvas and he has been sharing them with art lovers ever since. He attended Boise State University where he pursued a bachelor of fine arts degree in illustration and advertising design. After college, he worked in the Boise area as a graphic designer, illustrator and art director. Michael now concentrates full time on his painting career with an ability to create a broad subject matter, ranging from wildlife, landscapes to portraits. Michael is an award winning artist and has sold his paintings throughout the world. He works out of his studio on his Eagle, Idaho horse ranch, where he lives with his wife Suzie, twin daughters and their array of animals.
