Biography of Chessney Sevier


A great source of Chessney Sevier’s artistic aspiration comes from her mother’s artistic example and the chessney_bio_03simple beauty of the Nebraska Sandhills where she grew up. On a rodeo scholarship, Chessney attended Chadron Stage College and later graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art in 1998. She first began her artistic career as a graphic designer for a leading outdoor recreation company. Later, after moving to Wyoming in 2001 she became a full-time professional painter and printmaker. Today, the Wyoming landscape and culture influence her work more than anything else. Chessney and her small family live outside Buffalo, Wyoming.

  1. Dear Chessney,
    I am a complete tech-no-tard, but I am forever amazed at how we can stumble into fabulous finds on the internet. In the early 1930’s my husband’s grandmother taught at the one room schoolhouse at U Cross Wyoming. Years ago I was able to visit beautiful U Cross and see the very schoolhouse where she taught. For some reason, today I decided to look up U Cross and stumbled upon the page that listed the show you and Teresa Jordan where involved in. One year in Elko I was asked to participate as a guest in the Wild Women show with Teresa Jordan and the other ladies. I am a custom bootmaker and leather artisan. A little over a year ago I started to draw and paint watercolors. I visited your website and your work is exquisite, particularly your watercolors. I love your style, your use of color and the obvious fact that you clearly know horses. My husband and I ranch in the far North East corner of California and I have been around horses since I was a little girl, and it is such a pleasure to find an artist who so beautifully portrays horses and cattle. So my question for you is – do you ever teach?

  2. Hidy… FYI… I am placing your ‘Life & Lemonade” etching next to the “Summer Games” etching I bought a couple of years ago. As a farm & ranch broker in New Mexico and pretty much living my whole life out on the range, your art brings some simple pleasures of life on the range to life… Kudos… ka
