Kimbal Warren


Kimbal Warren grew up in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains near Salt Lake City, Utah. As a young boy, he discovered that he could draw most things better than his peers. And that he would rather draw than do about anything else. Kimbal graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1978. Some of his early odd jobs that helped support his young family and his painting included mechanic, window washer, truck driver, horse wrangler, hay hauler, tail twister, and furrier. He served in the U.S. Army Reserve from 1971 to 1978. He has been a full-time freelance painter for over three decades. He is married to Gayle Christensen Warren and his studio and residence is in Mapleton, Utah at the base of Hobble Creek Canyon. They have one daughter (Jennifer & Eric Hansen) and four horses. The horses have been a way for him to photograph and sketch areas that most do not see. He regularly packs his animals with a week’s worth of gear and grub and heads out for some of his favorite places to paint: the Wind River Mountain Range in Wyoming, the Uintah Mountain Range in Utah, or the many canyons in southern and eastern Utah. Kimbal is no stranger to adventure. He has also been an avid hiker, climbing to the top of the Grand Teton in Wyoming, hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and many places in between. Kimbal and his wife, Gayle, have had the opportunity to travel. Kimbal has painted and sketched throughout the U.S. and in China, Russia, England, Germany, Italy, Sicily, Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Portugal, Canada, Mexico, Western and Eastern Caribbean, Greece, Malta, and France.
