About Rick

Originally from the small agricultural town of Lodi, CA, his Central Valley work ethic pushed him through junior college (where he worked swing shift in a steel mill) on to SF State University where he studied art and advertising.   Rick has shown his work in galleries and public space all over the world – LA, SF, New York, Belgium and Germany. Rick blends his art career with his day job as Chief Operating Officer for Billups (a Portland-based Media Agency) and volunteer work as Board Advisor for Art Share LA.  He blows off steam racing stock cars with his dad in Northern California.
