Randy was born in 1968 in Edmonton, Alberta and continues to make Edmonton his home with occasional trips to the mountains and west coast for painting inspiration. In 1988, he completed the two-year Fine Arts program at Grant MacEwan College and continued his studies at the University of Alberta completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1990 and later a Bachelor of Education Degree in 2000.
Before becoming a full-time artist in 2010 Randy was a graphic designer for over 20 years. He now enjoys painting images that are reminders of personal experiences and places and appreciates the satisfaction that comes when his art resonates with the viewer. He works in acrylics because of it's fast-drying properties which give him the ability to create layers of colour that allow for flexible and spontaneous changes.
