Something Fishy

Original Watercolor Artwork 

by Zach Babat 

Zach was taken from us too soon but his legacy will live on in his art. Zach was a professional artist and a Alaskan bush pilot. He split his time between Montana and Alaska. 

Zach was drawn to the outdoors from early childhood. His first job out of high school was a fishing guide in the upper Madison River. After a couple summers of guiding in Montana, he decided to head for Alaska where he continued guiding. Flying called and Zach got his pilot’s license in 1994. One of his true loves was to fly Piper Super Cubs around Alaska from the Brooks Range to the Alaskan Peninsula.

The time he spent outdoors surrounded by wildlife and nature drove him to paint and gave him a unique perspective into their behaviors. 

Zach said, “It is the close interaction with the animals, their personalities I try to capture, not just the horns, claws, and teeth.”
