Bob Byerley

Considered a painter of nostalgic Americana, Bob Byerley and his beautifully detailed paintings delve into the precious imaginations of children. Byerley’s paintings take us to a peaceful place, where dreams are big and playing is safe.

Though the mood of his work is nostalgic, Byerley’s children are highly vivid and their experiences so classic, it is easy to imagine the events occurring for today’s youth as well as yesterday’s. His wonderfully whimsical images have gained national and international recognition. And this is no surprise as Byerley himself states, “the smile of a child is understood around the world.”
