David Hagerbaumer was born in Quincy, Illinois and is known for his watercolor and oil paintings featuring various wildlife and sporting scenes. He began as a hunter and a fisher in order to feed his family during the Great Depression and worked as a taxidermist in a decoy factory after he returned from the Marines in World War II. Hagerbaumer did not begin painting until he attended San Diego State College and did not begin selling his work until he worked at the Santa Barbara Museum in 1957 as one of their staff artist. He has been praised by fellow artists as being a prize hunter and artist. Hagerbaumer’s work is currently on view at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
