Doug Beekman

Doug Beekman grew up in northwestern Ohio. At age 19, he moved to New York City, enrolling at the School of Visual Arts and then the Art Students League of New York, where he studied with Daniel Greene, David Leffel and the late Robert E. Schulz.

On completion of his studies, Doug began creating illustration art of fantasy subjects for numerous book and magazine publishers, winning many awards for his efforts. Some 300 book covers and even more magazine and commercial illustrations later, Doug has been honored as a three time award winner in the prestigious Spectrum competition, in addition to honors from Communication Arts, the World Fantasy Symposium, the Overseas Press Club and other places too numerous to list.

"Passion is key to my art. When I experience a strong internal sense evoked by a special place or visualized scene, then capturing and conveying that feeling becomes my goal. It's an evocative quality that draws me to want to paint a given subject - out of the thousands of images I could put on canvas - that I want to share with the person looking at it."

To date, Beekman has exhibited at the Delaware Art Museum, Canton Museum of Art, Society of Illustrators of New York, Salmagundi Club, Words and Pictures Museum, and in numerous gallery exhibits. He has also had a one man show at the Wistarihurst Museum of Massachusetts in 1998.

Note: Doug Beekman's work will be exhibited at Chicon 7 by Northern Star Art.
