Joel Ostlind

Wyoming native Joel Ostlind is a self-taught artist who spent much of life herding cattle on horses throughout the American West. He holds degrees in Soil Science and Ranch Management, but always carried a sketchbook conveying his intimacy of the land with exquisite detail and authenticity.

Joel took a job wrangling on the Padlock Ranch in Montana in 1980s. In 1990, he bid farewell to his cowboy days and moved with his wife and family to a home outside Big Horn, Wyoming. He signed up for a printmaking class at Sheridan College and built a home studio.

Joel's work has been featured in galleries, museums and exhibitions across the US. His prints were exhibited in a 2005 solo show at Bradford Brinton Memorial and Museum in Big Horn, WY. He was the featured artist at the 2002 Coors Western Art Exhibit and the subject of a 2005 article in Southwest Art magazine.
