John Clymer

John Clymer began his life on the west coast, but spent much of his career out east working in illustration and advertising. Born in Ellensburg, Washington in 1917, Clymer grew up fascinated by natural art at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Over the course of his life, he nurtured his love of nature and eventually became most famous for his depictions of the iconic American west. His parents, John and Elmira Clymer, lived simple lives owning a greenhouse and florist business together.

John was not an academic child. He preferred doodles and staring at the landscape outside the classroom window over paying attention to adults. In his youth, the local Presbyterian pastor halted his own sermon to tell John, who was sitting in the back, to stop drawing in the hymnals.

------------------------

John Clymer a commencé sa vie sur la côte ouest, mais a passé une grande partie de sa carrière dans l'est à travailler dans l'illustration et la publicité. Né à Ellensburg, Washington en 1917, Clymer a grandi fasciné par l'art naturel au pied des montagnes Cascade. Au cours de sa vie, il a nourri son amour de la nature et est finalement devenu le plus célèbre pour ses représentations de l'emblématique ouest américain. Ses parents, John et Elmira Clymer, vivaient une vie simple en possédant une serre et une entreprise de fleuristes ensemble.

John n'était pas un enfant universitaire. Il préférait les gribouillis et regarder le paysage à l'extérieur de la fenêtre de la classe plutôt que de prêter attention aux adultes. Dans sa jeunesse, le pasteur presbytérien local a interrompu son propre sermon pour dire à John, qui était assis à l'arrière, de cesser de dessiner les cantiques.
