Randy lives and paints in Okanagan Falls, BC, Canada.
Born in Burnaby BC but raised in Alberta, Randy spent much of his formative years camping, hiking and fishing in the mountains and foothills West of Calgary with his family. From this he developed a deep appreciation for nature and the Southwest Alberta and BC landscapes. Randy’s always had a keen but varied interest in the arts with music, ceramics, woodcarving, painting and lutherie having captivated his attention at different times.
After an early career as a musician Randy turned his artistic attention to visual art when he enrolled at the Alberta College of Art and Design. His major was in Visual Communications which lead him to a twenty year career as a graphic artist/illustrator. He’s now pursuing more personal expression and exploration of the world around him through oil and acrylic painting and is discovering his artistic voice painting anything that inspires him.
Randy currently exhibits his work at the Fernie Arts Co-op, the Crowsnest Pass Art Gallery and at various art markets in BC and Alberta.
