D. Omer Seamon was born in Gibson County, Indiana in 1911. He began his career as a poster artist and his designs have been posted in every state in the U.S. and in 27 other countries. For 23 years he was Art Director for the Thomson-Symon Co., a large poster firm in Terre Haute, Indiana. During this period of time, he decided to freelance in his own studio which he built himself at Rosedale, Indiana, about 12 miles north of Terre Haute. Here, in very pleasant surroundings in the country, he combined his poster work with his love for watercolor painting. He exhibited his landscapes and portraits in watercolor in Illinois, New York, Michigan, Florida, Minnesota, and Indiana. He was a member of the Indiana Artists, the Hoosier Salon, and the Brown County Art Gallery.
