Growing up in wildlife-rich northwestern Pennsylvania, where his on-going love of the outdoors underlies and motivates his work, Larry Beckstein’s interest in capturing wildlife images on sketch pads and canvas had its beginning during his preteen years. He later refined his talent at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
A frequent exhibitor at wildlife shows, Larry is also a contributor to conservation groups such as Ducks Unlimited, Waterfowl USA, National Wild Turkey Federation, The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Whitetails Unlimited and other similar organizations. Larry has released over 50 limited edition prints from his original paintings and sketches. Valued by outdoorsmen and collectors, these prints are part of both public and private collections in North America.
