- Hermon was born on September 14, 1945, in Raymond Mississippi. Hermon’s artwork, especially the horses, is a reflection of several influences: growing up with and training horses, working on his family’s cattle farm, and working on ranches close by, and in Texas. Hermon followed his heart west in 1981. The Artist began his own publishing company in 1988, and has over twenty sold-out editions to his credit. While working with The Franklin Mint, he was one of their best-selling plate artists. He has had his images produced on Landmark Calendars, on paperback books from Leisure Books, and on playing cards. Hermon’s images can now be found on Leanin’ Tree greeting cards, on Candimar Designs cross- stitch, on Milton Bradley puzzles, and on collector plates from the Bradford Exchange, The Mountain Tee Shirts, and Tree Free Greeting Cards.
