Rick Kelley Biography

 Rick Kelley's wildlife and African art is a
 visual journal of his life travels, experiences,
 and adventures. Every creation evokes a
 fond memory of the wildlife Rick admires,
 preserves, and respects.

 Rick's approach is to capture the emotion in
 each animal, whether it is the serenity of
 the loon, the majesty of the bald eagle, or
 the stealth power of the gray wolf. These
 visions and strong emotions coupled with
 Kelley's scientifically, historically, and
 proportionately correct images have made
 him a nationally recognized and critically
 acclaimed wildlife artist.

 Rick began his quest to be an artist out of
 a love for nature at the early age of ten.
 He continued to paint through school, and
 after graduation Kelley took advantage of
 his father's transfer to Montana. There he
 used Montana's beauty as a backdrop and
 inspiration for his work. After studying at
 Eastern Montana University, Rick set out on
 his own. Less than ten years later in 1980,
 he began painting professionally — full time.

 An avid outdoorsman and naturalist, Rick
 Kelley donates much of his artwork to
 conservation fund-raising efforts and other
 charitable organizations. To date, over $12
 million has been raised in Kelley print sales
 for Ducks Unlimited, a non-profit wildlife
 organization. "Ducks Unlimited is an
 outstanding organization that is impressive
 in their dedication to protecting wildlife and
 natural habitats. It is an honor to have my
 art work supporting such a worthy cause,"

 said Kelley.

 Below are a list of awards and honors
 received by Rick Kelley:

 Today, Kelley publishes his own work
 through the company he and his wife own,
 Kelley Fine Art Publishing. It is this venue
 that affords Rick the opportunity to paint
 from his emotion, and create images that
 truly depict the beauty and mood of nature.
