David Dibble

David Dibble

Born in 1977, David Dibble was raised on a farm in Davis County, Utah, where he was influenced by the landscape from an early age. He completed a BFA in Illustration from Brigham Young University and began landscape painting in earnest in graduate school at the Academy of Art University. Following the Academy he and his wife Liz moved to New York, where he worked as a color artist for Blue Sky Studios (20th Century Fox), creating Concept Design for such films as Rio, Epic, Ice Age 4, Peanuts, and Ferdinand. David and his family now reside in Orem, Utah, where he teaches Illustration at Brigham Young University and paints often in the surrounding mountains and valleys, focusing largely on agricultural themes.

“Having grown up on a farm in Utah, the landscape of the West is deeply ingrained in my soul, particularly the agricultural heritage. Mountains and barns seem to be what I constantly come back to for inspiration. Seeing the loss of so much farmland in the West and the struggles that remaining farmers face, I want to celebrate that legacy and help others see the nobility in it.” www.dibbleart.com
