Rob Stern grew up on a small ranch near Billings, Montana. He was surrounded and influenced by the colors, smells and traditions of the old west. He credits his grandfather, a true cowboy as the most influential person in his life.
After high school Rob went on to study at the University of Montana where he received degrees in Business Marketing and Fine Arts. After college, Rob worked mainly in the commercial art industry creating graphics and designs for companies such as Coldwater Creek, The United States Olympic Committee, Nacona Boots and The Denver Zoo, to name a few.
Rob’s move into fine art was met with great success. His work is not exclusive to one medium. Efforts include oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, enamel on canvas, ink on bristle board, and serigraphy. Rob’s themes include art deco, nudes, abstracts, the old west and more.
Rob Stern resides in Whitefish, Montana, where he owns and operates his own gallery, Samarah Fine Art.
Rob’s passions are his children, Sammy and Sarah, after whom his gallery is named.
