Though his series of sold-out Zulu War prints won international recognition in the late 1980s, Bud Bradshaw has returned his focus to an emphasis on his first passion, the American West. An art major in his early college years, Bradshaw further honed his skills through study at the renowned Scottsdale Artists' School with Howard Terpning, Robert Abbett, Howard Rogers, Burne Hogarth, and others. He has won several prestigious awards, including the 1989 C.G. Rein Award, the 1991 Dan May scholarship in Scottsdale's "Best and Brightest" show, the Award of Excellence at the Oil Painters of America's 2003 Annual Juried Exhibit, and "Best of Show" awards at the 2002, 2006, and 2008 Norco Western Art exhibits. In 2010 Bradshaw became a member of the Western Artists of America.  His work appears in private collections and museums in the U.S., Canada, England, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Rome, Hong Kong, and South Africa, while several of his images have appeared in magazines and book covers, as well as limited-edition Giclees.
Bradshaw has also written two books:  1) "BRANDISHING", the true story of the Newhall Incident - the California Highway Patrol's greatest tragedy - and its aftermath (NOW AVAILABLE on Amazon's Kindle e-books); and  2) "RIVERWALKER", a terrifying novel of murder and mayhem along the banks of San Antonio's Riverwalk.  Even if you don't remember the Alamo, you'll never forget "RIVERWALKER."  (AVAILABLE NOW on Amazon.com Kindle e-books)
