A painter known for his photo-real western still life subjects, Don Doxey also paints western genre. He became an art teacher for 33 years at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, having earned an MFA Degree from the University of Utah, served in the Army, worked in television, and studied in New York at the American Art School. During those years, he was also painting and selling his works from galleries.

Doxey was born in Ogden, Utah to parents who were school teachers. He said he was raised on stories of pioneering Mormans that inspired his future career.

For his still-life subject depictions, he buys or borrows props from antique shops, and draws directly onto prepared canvas.
