Rick was born and raised in West Valley City, Utah. While growing up, he spent much time outdoors and on his grandfather’s ranch in Star Valley, Wyoming. This is where he acquired a particular love for horses and the cowboy lifestyle. Many of his paintings are inspired by these passions. His artistic technique varies from a loose impressionistic style with bright vibrant colors, to one that depicts fine detail.
While in college, Rick received an art scholarship where he began pursuing his interest in oil painting. Eventually, he began studying Fine Art at the University of Utah.
This is where he developed a deep appreciation for all kinds of art. Rick has been painting for over 20-years which has opened great opportunities and brought much joy to those he has worked with.
Rick, his wife and four sons currently reside in North Salt Lake, Utah.
“I have a deep appreciation for all kinds of artwork. my own style of art varies from a loose impressionistic style with bright vibrant colors, to an art style that depicts fine detail. I have tried all types of oil painting and will continue to study all different forms of art. I believe that there is always room to expand and grow in all forms of talent and hope that I will always have the opportunity to bring joy to others through my artwork.”
