Originally from California, Rick has lived in the Four Corners region of the desert southwest since 1994. He holds a B.A. degree in Fine Art, with a minor in Integrative Studies from Prescott College, Arizona, as well as an Associate of Arts degree in Graphic Design. He has studied at the San Francisco Art Institute with a focus on drawing and painting and at the San Francisco Academy of Art University in illustration.
