Rick is a professional photographer and portrait artist from the Atlanta, GA, metro area who has spent 20+ years as a portrait artist. The technique Rick uses evokes the individual emotion and personality of each pet. It is a perfect marriage of photography and oil or pastel paintings. While these masterpieces are created usingCorel Painter software, they are not computer generated images. Every detail is created by hand using the skills Rick has acquired over the years studying with several world renown portrait artists.
Each unique image begins with a studio portrait session. Once the pose is selected, Rick, using a stylist and a tablet, hand paints a one-of-a-kind work of art. The completed art can be output to a number of substrates including canvas, watercolor and photographic paper. After framing, these beautiful paintings will enhance any decor and give years of enjoyment and warm memories.
