M. W. Skip Whitcomb is an artist with varied interests and proficiency in several media. An accomplished plein air painter, draftsman and printmaker, he studied at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, where he received thorough training in drawing and painting. Whitcomb believes that "Drawing is the soul of painting." He carries a sketchbook with him everywhere he goes.

Painting studies on the spot, Whitcomb heads to his studio for the finished works. Raised on a ranch near Sterling, Colorado Whitcomb spent his summers Wyoming and the wide open spaces felt like home to him. A large part of his year is spent traveling throughout the West, but he is also rejuvenated by seeing and painting new places in the world. Whitcomb is recognized by his peers as an "artist's artist" and looks to the classics in art and literature for inspiration.

He lives in Fort Collins, Colorado and has participated in several gallery invitational shows and museums exhibitions around the country including National Academy, New York; Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma; National Academy of Western Art, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming; Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Colorado Springs, Colorado; the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming; and the Bradford Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming.
