Born October 31, 1952 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Doug Walpus spent his childhood in Omaha, Nebraska. He attended grade school and high school in the area.  A love for the outdoors and wildlife brought out a talent in art at a very young age. First brush to canvas began in sixth grade and resulted in a honorable mention gold key award. This began a life long endeavor to create reflections of the beauty in nature that surrounds him.

The early high school years were spent participating in school sports and every spare minute in the fields and lakes of the area. A camera became a constant companion while visiting nature's wonders, and is still at the artist side today.

During the years following high school, painting what the artist had seen and touched in nature, became a way of life. Encouraged by response to entries in the Federal Duck Stamp and  Wildlife Habitat State Competitions, the artist continued to paint and display his work.

Some of the artist's accomplishments include: commission work for Ducks Unlimited in Gallatin, Tennessee.   Commission work for Gulf Coast Conservation League in San Antonio, Texas and commission work for Nebraska Game and Parks commission in Ashland, Nebraska. The artist also had published work in the Totem, School District Omaha, Nebraska. In 2008 the artist received honorable mention in the Oklahoma Duck Stamp Competition, honorable mention in the Delaware Trout Stamp Competition, Award of Merit in the Wyoming Habitat Stamp Competition and a Finalist in the Federal Duck Stamp.
