Zach Babat 

Fish and Wildlife Artist

Bio

Zach was taken from us too soon, but his legacy will live on through his art. Zach was a professional artist and Alaskan bush pilot. He split his time between Alaska and Montana, the two states will the best fish and wildlife. 

Zach spent over 20 years as an outdoor guide and pilot. These experiences gave him the inspiration for his artwork. He had the opportunity to get face-to-face with the wildlife species of the west. 

Zach said "it is the close interaction with the animals, their personalities I try to capture, not just the horns, claws, and teeth."

Zach used watercolor, transparent and opaque to bring his animals and fish to life. He perfected the use of watercolor on canvas.
