  • Theodore Waddell's first children's book! This charming book about his beloved Bernese Mountain dogs is a story about a playful pooch who has to get involved in everything.

    Tucker's not the kind of dog who just sits around the house. Oh no. There's always something fun to do somewhere, and whatever it is, Tucker knows where to find it. Is that Tucker on the golf course? Is that him sunning on the beach? You won't believe all the crazy things he likes to do, and all the different places he likes to go. No wonder Tucker gets tuckered. Wouldn't you?

    Theodore Waddell is an artist whose love of nature and animals (especially Bernese Mountain Dogs) can be seen in his masterly landscapes of Idaho and his native Montana. His work hangs in galleries across the country and is on display at the Denver Museum of Art, the Boise Art Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others. He and his wife Lynn Campion, divide their time between studios in Idaho and Montana.

Born in Billings, Montana in 1941, Theodore Waddell studied art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in New York in 1962-63 and received a bachelorís degree from Eastern Montana College in 1966. In 1968 he received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture and Printmaking from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. In 1968, Waddell joined the University of Montana's Art Faculty and retired from teaching in 1976. Soon after, he began working in Montana as a rancher and artist, and his current work reflects the influences of these two professions. His art career took off in 1983 when he was invited to exhibit his work in the prestigious Corcoran Biennial 38th Survey of American Art. In 2004 he was honored at the White House for his work with the U.S. State departmentís Art in Embassies program which exhibits his work in various U.S. Embassies around the world.

Waddellís abstract impressionistic rendering of real subject matter reflects the American experience of living in the West and his love of the land. His work is found in private and corporate collections throughout the world and is currently exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the western United States. He is a past recipient of the state of Montanaís Governorís Arts Award, and in 2015 he received Artist of the Year honors from the Yellowstone Art Museum. In 2017 a major retrospective celebrating his career, Theodore Waddell: My Montana was published by Riverbend Publishing.

Today, Waddell and his wife Lynn Campion divide their time between homes in Sheridan, Montana and Hailey, Idaho, and Mr. Waddell continues to paint most every day. In his spare time, he creates beautifully illustrated books featuring his beloved Bernese Mountain dogs, his passion for the game of golf and tales of his Montana childhood and ranching years.
