Travis Herberger was born and raised in Longview, Texas. For him, watercolor is the perfect medium for painting because it's elusive, unpredictable and has a mind of its own. His paintings are reflections of his surroundings that he experiences on each canvas. Captivated by the Texas Gulf Coast region, landscapes from this region are present in his artworks. People make up an integral part of his work. Travis Herberger uses busy urban settings as opposed to simpler landscapes as they allow him more colors and have more feeling within them than simple pictures would offer.
Travis Herberger is an artist and he loves to draw as much as he does painting. For the past 5 years, Travis has been part of a local sketch group that meets weekly and sketches a live model together.
Travis Herberger has found that travel is an important influence in his paintings. He went traveling himself as a child, and the love of traveling took him to Europe, South and Central America as well as Africa. Travis also says "Traveling opened my eyes to so many colorful possibilities." After some time spent painting watercolors for promotional purposes - with wonderful opportunities coming out of this - he then decided to pursue acrylics on canvas full-time. His work now appears in shows around the world.
