About

Rich Rawling

Rich paints exclusively in watercolour. His aim is to start with a representational subject and then stray playfully into abstraction. Sometimes he stays close to home. At other times he veers off into far away places (both physically and artistically).

In addition to painting, Rich is graphic designer, volunteer English teacher, and adventure cyclist,. He graduated with a B.A. in Studio Fine Art from the University of Waterloo. He is usually based in Squamish, BC, Canada, but he finds that stays at foreign artist residencies help to inspire productivity.
