About Richard Ciccarelli
I was first exposed to painting by my paternal grandfather, and I began to draw comic books and illustrated adventure stories on the backs of my father’s prescription pads as a young boy. I did my first oil paintings as a teenager, mostly imaginative images, but also some of the surrounding New England countryside. I continued to paint in college, and traveled widely after graduating, working and painting in Europe and then in my wanderings back and forth across the United States. My migrations slowed in the mid-80’s and I set up a studio in San Francisco for 9 years and then in New York City for an equal length of time before moving back to California. I currently live and work in Sonoma County, California.
