Growing up in Edmonds, Guy Anderson showed and interest in art and culture at a young age. Once he graduated from high school he studied with Alaskan scenic painter Eustace Ziegler, who taught Anderson a number of important skills and was the inspiration behind his fondness for oil paints. Anderson won a Tiffany foundation scholarship and spent the summer of 1929 on Long Island. After that he moved back to Washington where he soon befriended a young Morris Graves and in the mid-1930s the duo traveled down the Oregon and California coast before coming back up to Seattle.
