The Artist: John Richer is a painter and illustrator living in Flamborough, Ontario. He began his artistic journey as a young boy painting alongside his grandmother. John received his Bachelor of Arts from York University and an honours degree in Graphic Design & Illustration from Mohawk College. Following a profession as a graphic designer, John switched gears and moved back to his roots, purchasing his grandparents’ farm property in 2008. Surrounded by nature, his inspiration is now close at hand as he draws and paints in the same studio he did as a boy.
“Nature has always been the primary catalyst in my artwork, no matter what medium or style I’m working with. As an artist, I am interested in capturing the power and beauty that I see existing within the plants and wildlife that surround us.”
