Richard Hoedl, Nanaimo, British Columbia Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement
Born in 1970, Richard Hoedl grew up on a farm in the frozen swampland of northern Alberta, Canada. As Richard was noted for his artwork from the time he was a young child, he left as soon as possible to begin his art training and career.
After doing the whole starving artist stint for way too long he finally started to get it right!
He has since grown in popularity, selling his work to a long list of international collectors. His prices doubling just in the last few years alone. With his unique styles that captures the human condition within the deceivingly simple landscapes and the classical nudes.
While painting frantically in his loft studio, Richard continues to explore the vast opportunities of a variety of mediums and a continual cascade of new inspirations.
