Warren Neary’s work primarily focuses on realistic impressions of the figure, landscapes, cityscapes and still lifes.
“I'm moved by the grace and beauty of the figure, and I’m learning to capture the emotion filled moments in relationships we share with each other. I enjoy being a son and student of a loving Heavenly Father and master creator."
"It is exhilarating to explore scenes of subtle or dramatic light, color and design. I appreciate warm low-level lighting such as in the evening or candle lit situations. In drawing and painting from life, it is a challenge and delight to capture what I see in my artwork.”
After graduating from high school as the Art Sterling Scholar, he attended Utah State in 1994 where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree on a two-year art scholarship.
