As a native and current resident of Idaho, Lyon’s early life was filled with horses, farming, and wildlife in a land rich in history. These familiar subjects are often painted against a backdrop from a specific locale encountered in his travels throughout the United States. Recognizable landmarks and monuments create compositional effects in his paintings as well as lending an attitude of familiarity for the viewer of each of his paintings.
Lyon received a degree in Art Advertising and Design from Ricks College and furthered his art education at Boise State University. He developed his professional career as a commercial artist through 1978, while coming home to work on his own art well into the night. In 1978 he began to paint full time and has been a professional fine artist since then. He lists numerous awards and shows to his credit and his work hangs in many private and public collections.
