Hi, my name is Ric and I am a painter and outdoors man. I am a proud member of "The Cloud Appreciation Society", a British society devoted to cloud lovers. I was born in Portugal, now married to a Swedish woman and currently residing in Sweden. On this website you will find:

. BA, Illustration and Fine Art at Swansea’s Institute of Higher Education, University of Wales - UK
Note: I did not learn how to paint in college since representational art and traditional skills were frowned upon by art teachers at the time. I did not feel like throwing /dripping paint in a canvas to "express my emotions"or feel like creating useless contraptions to be displayed as art in an installation. Hence why I studied traditional illustration instead.
So when it comes to my painting skills, I am 95% self taught .
