Lockwood was born and raised in Santa Paula, California. After graduating from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with an Agricultural Management Degree, George spent 19 years guiding in Alaska. Living in the Alaskan bush and watching animals for months at a time played an important part in his art and ultimately led to a new career. He has won numerous awards and gained national recognition for his work depicting wildlife and landscape including 20 State Duck and Game Bird Stamps and Nation’s Best Duck Stamp Design twice.

George now paints for shows, galleries, competitions and by commission. His paintings are a record of experiences and they can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and around the world. The solo show will include Lockwood’s well-known depictions of wildlife and landscape, as well as local scenes and a variety of subject matter from many parts of the country. The exhibition runs through October 11, 2015.
