Richard (Rick) Cline has an artistic respect for nature and the landscape we live in. He grew up in a small town in south central Manitoba, Glenboro. Rick’s mom started his interest in art at a young age and she gave him the gift of an artistic hand.
Rick worked as a Conservation Officer (Game Warden) for over thirty years living in all areas of Manitoba, like Riverton, Lynn Lake, Gillam and Virden. This provided Rick with an understanding of wilderness, wildlife and nature. Rick lives in Seven Sisters Falls now with his wife Heather.
Rick’s art has developed in his retirement over the past ten years with classes, lectures from some great artists, and a supportive art community. He enjoys sharing with other artists by attending shows and local classes. The Boreal Shores Art Tour has been an experience that allows the art lovers to come together and share expertise. He has been able to sell his art through shows and many commissions from interested art lovers throughout North America.
Rick enjoys art that shows a natural realistic image of the work being created. Through his art, he hopes to demonstrate to others the unique beauty of nature that he has been fortunate to experience and hold dear.
His greatest notion is that after a career outdoors he now sees nature so much clearer as a result of his studying of art. Rick’s attention to detail, his respect and love of natural world is displayed in each of his paintings.
