Rick Sanders has been creating art since he was a child, and he got his first camera when he was only seven years old. He earned a masters degree in art education in 1985, which led him to become proficient in a variety of media in order to teach art. He has taught students from preschools to colleges and adult education. His two great loves as an artist are oil painting and photography, but he also excels in pastels, pen-and-ink, charcoal, colored-pencil drawing, and mixed media.
He has shown his work across the United States and is an award-winning artist. Copies of his art work have been distributed worldwide.
Rick has written for years and has recently had his first novel published with thewordverve: Strange Times in Yeehaw Junction. Now he also uses his imagination to paint pictures with words.
