Dallen Lambson grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. He was the third of eight children and has always felt blessed to have been raised in a large family. Dallen has always considered his family and upbringing to be a significant influence for good in his life. “There is something very stabilizing that comes with being raised in a home where God and family take priority.” He has fond memories of road trips, camping, hunting, and fishing with his family. It was in that setting that he began to develop an interest in the work his Dad, Hayden Lambson, was doing as a wildlife artist.
After graduating high school in 1995 he went on to serve a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Up-State New York area. Upon his return he pursued an associate’s degree in General Business from Ricks College and then a Bachelor’s in Business Management from ISU.
Later, Dallen went on to marry the stunning Malory Gneiting, and they currently reside in the foothills of South East Idaho. Between them they have seven children; Haven, who passed away soon after he was born, Dax, Lake, Ashlyn, Kye, and Adrie. He considers his wife and children, “(His) most priceless possessions in life.”
When he’s not painting or drawing he enjoys time with his family, hunting, fishing, and fulfilling church callings.
Dallen’s artwork can be found internationally in various retail stores including Cabelas, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Sportsman’s Warehouse, and others. Additionally his art has been featured in a number of publications such as Western Hunter, MDF, Fur Fish and Game, Grand Slam, Texas Outdoors Journal, and Trophy Hunter. His work has been featured in books by noted authors and outdoor adventure personalities such as Tom Miranda, Ryan Hatfield, Dennis Dun, and Dean Hulce. He has also been heavily involved in artistic contributions to numerous wildlife organizations throughout the country and was particularly honored to be the Mule Deer Foundation's 2012 Artist of the year, and, more recently, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's 2016 Artist of the Year.
Dallen feels especially grateful for those who have gone to bat for him throughout his career. In his own words, “Like many things, success in the wildlife art industry requires some fortunate breaks along the way. People willing to steer you in the right direction and point you to the right people. My Dad has been my biggest advocate. His efforts, combined with those of so many others, have been the driving force in this venture. Furthermore, I am one of those who believe that all good things in this life come from a loving Father in Heaven. To him I am most grateful, and sincerely hope that my conduct and character reflect that gratitude.”
