A South-Central Pennsylvania native, Larry Selman was raised in a military family. His love of history and art has been nurtured all of his life. These interests led him to enroll at The York Academy of Art and earn a commercial art degree in 1982. Following graduation, Selman built a successful career with paperback novel illustration. He collaborated with top art directors and major publishers from all over the country. After a long and successful career as a commercial illustrator he moved into the Western fine art and recently the historical print market.
