Bob Pettes


Artist Bob Pettes was raised in Minneapolis Minnesota. His drawing talents were soon discovered while still at grade school and continued to develop through his college years. Formal instruction in art was later gained at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Bob commenced his professional career as a commercial artist and illustrator working over the years for both advertising agencies and consumer products companies. He later went on to develop his own distinctive "American" style of painting for which he is best known. Such works had appeal to major galleries as well as to publishers and gift manufacturers.

The quaintness of rural life is a recurring theme in his American paintings. A later European sojourn inspired him to focus on similar aspects of village life in England, France, Germany and Switzerland.

The recipient of many art awards during his long career, Bob's work has wide appeal elsewhere. His paintings have been produced into calendars, prints porcelain products and greeting cards. It is a pleasure to offer a selection of his best works in jigsaw puzzles.
