Bio ~ Updated January 2014, Welcome to all. Thank you so much for visiting ! Painting plus fine art photography. Living on the east coast in the New Jersey shore area, plus living in Europe Rick has always had a connection with the Arts. Earlier in his career, he performed as a singer /drummer, with some writing and recording, at the Record Plant NYC and a few other recording studios in Philadelphia.After that career, a businessman saw some of his sketches pen & ink drawings etc. & believing in his talent , he commissioned him to do a a series of paintings for a cancer center treating children. From there he studied intently … reading the life and letters of Vincent Van Gogh and many of the other painters who have left their mark. Learning also from life and travel he gained a wealth of knowledge. Then, through a metamorphosis, Rick became a serious painter and launched out to capture and render the beautiful world that surrounds us. Some of the themes you will see reflected in his paintings have been influenced by the towns, villages, cities and rural countryside he has visited. His paintings are in homes as far north as Quebec City, Saint Antoine sur Richelieu in Canada, and throughout the U.S. from the East to West Coasts.Various places have shown and sold his work, from high end boutiques in Palmer square, Princeton, N.J., small galleries to upscale Resto/Coffeehouses and Barnes & Noble.
