Robert Fletcher started his career as an advertising artist with the Chicago Tribune and has transformed from the fields of graphics and illustration to sculpting and painting. Along the way, his work has appeared in national publications, on television and in major motion pictures.
Sports have always played a prominent role in Fletcher’s life and he has, for the past decade, been combining his passions for golf and art. Golf’s rich heritage has provided Fletcher with inspiration for both painting and sculpture. While exhibiting his work at the nationally recognized “Sculpture in the Park” in Loveland, Colorado, he was offered a commission to create a bronze sculpture of Arnold Palmer for Cherry Hills Country Club. A smaller bronze version was then offered as a limited edition and the first casting was sent to Mr. Palmer.
Fletcher continues to receive commissions from both individuals and organizations. He is currently working with three nationally recognized golf clubs, producing a series of paintings and sculptures that will commemorate each club’s history.
More of his golf related paintings and sculpture, along with other work from his career, can be seen on his website robertfletcherart.com.
