Herman Walker spent his formative years in the ranch country of West Texas on a 120 square mile ranch. After receiving a degree in Animal Science from Texas Tech, Herman began his art career. For years, his work has sold throughout the West and Mid-West portraying the ranch life of the American cowboy. “The essence of my work," he says, "reflects the traditions and values of the cowboy. They live, work and play putting their brand on the land.”
From 1973 to 1978, Herman and his wife, Deanne, had a gallery/foundry in Kerrville, Texas. When his paintings and sculpture began to gain recognition, they moved back to Eldorado, Texas, to be close to subject matter he loved. In 2008, they returned to Kerrville to be near family. His work has appeared in Texas and the West in numerous Western art shows, including at the Museum of the Big Bend in Alpine, Texas; the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock; and the American Quarter Horse Museum in Amarillo.
