Robert Bucknell is an award winning  artist with more than 50 years experience working as a commercial and fine artist.   He began painting signs in the 70's when studying art in college and  owned sign businesses in Sacramento and Carson City, Nevada while developing his skills as a muralist and fine artist.   In the late 90's he transitioned into full time mural painting and spent more than 20 years traveling extensively throughout the US and overseas painting large scale landscape and wildlife murals for natural history exhibits.   His murals have been displayed in public, government, residential, and commercial places, including more than 30 Cabela's Sporting Goods Stores.

Recently retired from mural painting Robert  has turned his attention back to oil painting with a preference for realism.   His fine art was  previously  carried by James Harold Galleries at the Boatworks in Tahoe City, California; Art for the Home, South Shore, Lake Tahoe, and Lone Tree Gallery in Minden, Nevada. 

Robert's work is currently exhibited at the Brewery Arts Center’s Nevada Artists Association Gallery in Carson City and the Nevada State Legislature.

​Robert and his wife Diane live in Carson City, Nevada and have owned Bucknell Arts since 1989.
