Living in the Rockies and other western mountain ranges of North America, mountain goats have evolved with the strength and balance needed to survive on the icy cliffs and steep precipices they call home. Few predators can scale the heights to pursue them and once they do, they find their would-be prey almost invisible, their white coats a perfect camouflage against the snow. "You'll notice that in the trees behind the mountain goats there's a ponderosa pine that's dying. The rusty brown needles indicate this. The cycles of life in each ecosystem are continually in motion, and I try to be as true to them as possible." ~Stephen

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
