About the Artist

Bob Byerley is one of the foremost painters of children today. Considered a modern day Norman Rockwell, Bob's nostalgic "Trompe l'Oeil" fool the eye realism oil paintings evoke a feeling of a kinder and gentler age in which he grew up.

Byerley's children are real, not fabricated or cutsie. In his paintings, imagination abounds. His children interact naturally with fairies, elves and surrealistic imaginary animals. Bob Byerley paints children doing things rather than viewing things; his kids are alive with vitality and mischief.
