Adam Grimm (1978- )
A native of Ohio, Adam Grimm is a two-time Federal Duck Stamp artist. His 2014-2015 stamp portraying a pair of canvasbacks is expected to raise millions for wetland habitat conservation. In 1999, when he was only 21 years old, Adam became the youngest winner with his first Federal Duck Stamp. He has also won several state duck stamp contests. Now living in Burbank, South Dakota, Adam and his family enjoy wildlife photography, hunting, fishing and hiking.
