Richard Prather biography:
Love for the natural environment has been central to Richard Prather’s life. From his early days as a Boy Scout to college where Richard earned a B.S. degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences in 1981 from Texas A&M University and worked for the next 30 years as a Life Scientist helping to protect and conserve natural resources. From his early days of drawing with pencil Richard was largely self-taught having started painting in the late 70’s while in College. He is quick to point out that besides the 30 plus years of study and painting on his own he credits the many workshops from some of the very best plein air artists working today with having the largest impact on the quality of his work. Recent successes in plein air events and acceptances in to numerous national juried shows attest to that fact. Iconic images of the American West and atmospheric landscapes comprise the largest part of Richard’s work today. Richard is a Signature member of the Oil Painters of America and a Master Signature Member of the Plein Air Painters New Mexico. Richard currently lives in Placitas, New Mexico with his wife Sharla and their dog Louie.
