A native of Salt Lake City, Dave Roholt lived in Northern Japan for two years prior to studying at Utah State University earning a BFA in Painting, and later a MFA in Painting from Colorado State University. His past teaching experience includes Northeastern Junior College located in Sterling, Colorado. He now enjoys residing in the Pacific Northwest with his artistically gifted wife Jenny who instructs art at Tacoma Community College.

When not in the studio Dave can be found prospecting all types of fish, looking for inspiration in nature and beyond for his next works of art, as he is an avid fly fisherman.
