Salsnek Stats

Nature artist John Salsnek hung up his suit and tie to try out the idea of creating a vocation from his passion for creating a vocation from his passion for capturing nature on canvas. The plan was one year. It's been a long year... about 275 months and counting.

After a decade in the Gallery and Exhibition circuit, Paw Prints Gallery was established in 1999, exclusively featuring John's work... a walk into nature. In 2005, the Gallery became a seperate entity catering to the comfort of John's collectors and his Studio expanded.
