Aaron Kilpatrick was a landscape painter born in St. Thomas, Canada on April 7, 1872. Kilpatrick was educated in the public schools of Canada and moved to the United States in 1892. He was a businessman until middle age, when he decided to dedicate his career to fine art. In 1915, he moved to Southern California. In the same year he was awarded bronze and silver medals for paintings at the California-Panama Exposition in San Diego. He studied locally with William Wendt and held his first solo show at Leonard's in Los Angeles in 1923. He was the first artist to discover the beauty of Morro Bay. During his career as an artist he achieved national acclaim and was elected an Associate of the National Academy. A resident of Eagle Rock and Los Angeles, he died in San Luis Obispo County on August 17, 1953.
