Bill Yankee, Lander Wyoming Artist

Bill Yankee

The inspiration for Bill Yankee’s art comes from the light, the landscape, and the inhabitants of the American West. He has been a working cowboy in three states. After many years producing art, teaching art, and ranching in Wyoming, Bill now lives and works in the mountains of northwest Montana overlooking Flathead Lake. The continued viability of working ranches and the open spaces they preserve and nurture are very important to him, and to his art.

As an artist, Bill Yankee works in a variety of media including oils and pastels. He studied these media while completing his Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Wyoming. Desiring a more traditional academy training to complement his university experience, he also studied drawing at the Art Students League of New York. He also works in the medium of etched glass, creating unique, one-of-a-kind furniture and accessories.


 Yankee’s work has been exhibited in the Allied Artist of America Exhibition in New York; the National Pastel Painting Exhibition in Albuquerque, New Mexico; the Governors Capitol Art Exhibition in   Cheyenne, Wyoming; the Panhandle-Plains Western Art Show and Sale in Canyon, Texas; the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming; and the Masters in Miniature Exhibition at the C.M. Russell   Museum in Great Falls, Montana.
