Folsom, New Mexico is home to respected artist Dino Cornay. Endless inspiration for his highly detailed work lies in the heart of the ranch country where he was raised as well as from the people, horses and cattle which are part of his world. Western ranch life is front and center in his work. Since childhood and with no formal training, he has been documenting the ranching way of life as well as western wildlife. A great deal of intention is paid to authenticity of his subject matter. Working primarily in graphite, he works in oils as well.
Dino's art has been featured in several prestigious publications including Western Horseman, American Quarter Horse Journal, New Mexico Stockman, as well as numerous other articles and covers on various publications. His work has been selected in recent years to be the poster artist for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association convention, as well as projects with the American Angus Association and a nation wide limited edition print project with Merck Animal Health. Other major projects include a commissioned original drawing plus a poster project for his Alma Mater, Kansas State University, and most recently, an original drawing for the American Hereford Association which was auctioned and will hang permanently at the national offices in Kansas City. Along with this, a nationwide limited edition print is being offered through the association.
Many originals have been sold through shows as well as privately into western art collections, and the audience has dramatically increased through the years through numerous sales of limited edition collector prints from the many editions that have reached sold out status.
