David Mensing grew up in Iowa and moved to The West as a young man. David
lives in Sisters, Oregon with his wife and their three children.
A professional artist for more than fifteen years, Dave has also worked
professionally as an Architect and a Camp Director. He has been certified as a
white-water rafting guide and at one time was a talented Pole Vaulter.
For David, each painting is a statement – every aspect of the presentation is
important. His architectural background contributes to his compelling designs.
He is careful to select a title for each painting that reflects the character and
spiritual basis of the work.
David’s paintings are featured in collections and exhibitions across the nation
and around the globe. Numerous books and periodicals have featured his work
with cover images and feature articles, including American Art Collector,
Southwest Art and Western Art Collector. Recent national awards include
Southwest Art’s ‘Award of Excellence’ in Icons of the West and Art and Soul:
‘Professional Juror / Best of Show.’
