Neil Persons finished his first acrylic painting about three months ago. Inspired by childhood memories and guided by the wisdom of his 47 years on planet Earth, Neil doesn’t yet know where his painting is taking him, but he’s having fun.
Born and raised in Whitefish, Montana, Neil is a former U.S. Telemark Ski Team member, Big Mountain Ski Patroller, Boise BLM Smokejumper, Glacier National Park Trail Crew Leader, and Glacier National Park Backcountry Ranger. He attended college at Flathead Valley Community College, the University of Montana, Montana State University, and Johnson County Community College in Kansas City, Kansas. Neil now works for Burlington Northern Santa Fe as a conductor/engineer.
Neil hopes his paintings bring a smile to your face and a chuckle to your mind.
