BIO Premiere artist Rick J Rowley was born in the heart
of Montana and raised in a small town near the continental divide. He spent much of his youth hiking and
camping in the Rocky Mountains where his love for creativity started as a young
man’s dream. Rick developed an
uncommon drive to excel and consequently rose rapidly to leadership in the corporate
workplace in his early twenties. Yet the realm of pin stripe suits and silk
ties could not satisfy the artistic urges of his expressive heart. He wanted to
create without limitations.
Rick left his executive position in 1991 to establish
himself as a professional artist and dedicated his life to the creation and
fabrication of fine art. The wide diversity
of fine art forms manifesting from Rick’s Sedona Arizona studio exemplifies his
passion for creating and proves testimony of his incredible prolific nature.
Add to these traits his incessant drive toward perfection and you begin to
understand Rick’s mastery of many art mediums. Sculpting in bronze, exotic woods, glass, raw metal, and
stone, his 3 dimensional designs range from as small as 3 inches to heroic
sizes exceeding 28 feet.
As self taught artist, his signature stands only. Currently
Rick spends much time teaching his unique styles of sculpture in the Orient
where he is enjoying an ancient culture and learning to communicate in the
native language. There he works in cooperatively with many Chinese entrepreneurs
and local Officials in development of the marketing of creative arts.
“Creative thought bears no fruit unless you put forth the
action to express it,” he says. “And this is especially true in the arts.”
Having gained recognition at the Smithsonian Institute of Fines Arts and The
White House Rick still chooses not to participate in traditional marketing
concepts. Yet notably, Rick’s creations are found in private and corporate
collections through out the World. Recently Rick designed as well as headed the funding concept for
the installation of 6 life size human figures in Bronze, to be placed in the
city park of Long Beach California. Also 4 life size Human figures in Lewistown
Montana for the Veterans Memorial Park. Rick just completed a larger than life size bronze of Evel Knievel riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Currently Rick is working on a memorial honoring 19 Hotshot fire-fighters that lost their lives in a Yarnell/Prescott wildfire. Many fine art lovers in Europe, Japan, Australia,
Asia, and South America also own fine art designs created Rick J Rowley.
