In the introduction to the book Guy Coheleach’s Animal Art, Roger Tory Peterson wrote, “Guy is perhaps the most versatile and, in a sense, the most professional wildlife artist I have ever known because he can paint in any medium and in almost any style…”

We hope that you will consider purchasing one or more of these incredible original works by close RTPI friend Guy Coheleach, recipient of the Society of Animal Artist’s Award of Excellence an extraordinary eight times, and 2012 recipient of the Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Guy Coheleach at RTPI, October 2019

“My interest and introduction to nature, in general, was a direct result of a worn-out black and white Peterson Field Guide to the Birds. I truly believe that people’s interest in the outdoors and the desire to learn about the natural world are important results of Roger Tory Peterson and his Field Guides. Watching birds outside kitchen windows, in forests and on farms and city streets, everyday citizens began to notice the natural things around them and to identify them using Peterson Field Guides. In this way, millions of people – including me – became part of the environmental movement.”
