Doug Kreuger, Landscape Artist

Member of Oil Painters of America

Doug was born in, Aberdeen, South Dakota, and grew up in Hazel Crest, Illinois. From early childhood, Doug demonstrated a strong interest in drawing, painting, and building things. Throughout his school years, Doug excelled in all his art classes, winning numerous awards and recognition for his artistic abilities. 

Upon graduating from high school, Doug became a student at The American Academy of Art, Chicago, where he studied commercial graphics, life drawing and watercolors. 

Doug’s first job as a professional artist was with Unigraf, a company that specialized in designing P.O.P (point-of-purchase) displays and display graphics. Doug left that company in 1982 to start his own graphic design agency, Design Dimensions, Inc. Now in its 33rd year, DD continues to provide highly creative artwork for commercial advertising under Doug’s creative direction.

Working as a professional graphic artist, designer and illustrator, Doug has become skilled at creating digital artworks using a computer. Doug is also knowledgeable about printing reproduction methods. Many of Doug’s designs, some of them award winning, appear on consumer product packaging, trade ads, company brochures and websites worldwide.

 Throughout his professional career, Doug has enjoyed oil painting as a hobby for his own personal pleasure. Favorite subjects have included landmark landscapes, flower gardens, animals and family portraits. Although Doug has formal training in the use both watercolors and oils, his preferred media is oil colors. Doug has honed his painting skills over the years while working on both smooth and textured surfaces. Although smooth hardboard panels allow for greater detail, Doug prefers the way his brushes and pallet knives interact with the nature of stretched canvas to produce more impressionistic results.

Doug’s painting style is perhaps best described as traditional representational. His deliberate approach to painting fine details allows him to capture the uniqueness found in each of his subjects. Doug’s personal knowledge and experience with architectural construction is evident in his keen sense of perspective and his applied drawing ability. As a long-standing member of the Door County Art League, Door County, WI, Doug has exhibited his artwork through a wide variety of art venues in the Door County area. Additionally, Doug has found success in selling his original paintings and reproduction art prints through a number of local art galleries, and world wide through his Fine Art America website.

Doug’s growing presence in the art community is earning him national recognition for his artistic ability. For those interested in collecting Doug’s artworks, now is the best time to make your purchases—before the value of Doug’s artwork escalates further.
