Rick is a self taught artist working mainly in oils, originally from Red Deer, Alberta and now based in Calgary. His work is clearly influenced by the special light, landscapes and wildlife found between the prairies and mountains.
His work has been included in Government Travelling Exhibits, One Man, and Group Shows in Canada and the United States, with purchases by the Government of Alberta, Major Corporations, and Private Collectors. He is a frequent contributor to auctions, stamp and poster projects in support of organizations such as Trout Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Federation of Fly Fisherman, and the Bull Trout Task Force.
His painting have served as covers for sport equipment catalogues, and magazines such as Alberta Hunting and Fishing, and Rural Montana.
Long known as a skilled portrayer of wildlife, Rick's more recent work has shown an increasing sensitivity to light and color as subjects in themselves, often expressed in the urban environment of houses, gardens, city parks, and golf courses.
Rick's 25-year struggle to develop himself as a painter has made him very sensitive to the needs of students, and since 1989 he has dedicated part of every year to bring this experience to classes throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan.
