 Rick is an award winning Santa Barbara based artist who works in oils
on both canvas and board. He recieved formal training in biological illustration at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland Ca. Born in 1953 he spent his early years soaking up the beauty of the Northern California's back country near his grandparent's ranch in Sebastapol, California.

The vision of those undeveloped vistas has remained strong throughout the years and is still to date a strong influence in his work.

Relying on a love of nature, an interest in the California Plein Air movement as well as commercial training in realism he has created a unique blend of style and vision.
