Don Biehn's Main Web Presence



Don trained in design, illustration and fine art at Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida.

During his career in commercial art, Don worked as an independent illustrator/designer in Milwaukee and San Francisco. He moved back to the Midwest and Saint Paul in the mid 1970's where he opened a graphic art studio which eventually grew to a staff of eighteen. Don Biehn Studio received multiple national and local awards from the graphics community for design, layout and illustration.

Through the years, Don used fine art as a release from the busy world of advertising art. Now, painting fulltime, Don's primary medium is oil, he also works in watercolor. He has studied in the plein air school, and is now devoted to painting outside in the sub zero weather as well as the mosquito laden humidity of July.

He is the recipient of these national awards in painting, Award of Excellence from Oil Painters of America.

In 2011, Don's work was named "best-of-the-best in impressionism" with the President's Choice Award – one of only 6 primary awards in a juried exhibition of 200 paintings – from the American Impressionist Society. The artist is a signature member of the Society, and has earned the distinction of signing his work with the "AIS" initials.
