Profile: Michael Budden
Michael Budden established his name early in his career as an award-winning wildlife artist, painting in the national parks and mountains of the western United States. His wildlife paintings are in the collections of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont and the Hiram Blauvelt Wildlife Museum in Oradell, New Jersey. Budden has now shifted his interest to painting landscapes, urban scenes and nocturnes and is, again, winning prestigious awards for his work.
Your background was originally primarily in wildlife art. What precipitated your shift to incorporate other subjects into your work? Do you continue your wildlife work as well as your landscape and figurative painting?
