Rick Kaminskas

Rick Kaminskas is a self taught artist. He uses the technical pen and a combination of line work and pointallism to create a feeling of depth and dimension. Extensive use of shadows create a sense of drama not usually achieved in this medium.

Inspiration comes from various sources including the Library of Congress American Memories collection of depression era photography taken by government photographers.

Additional inspiration comes from Rick's daughter Kate, a committed dancer and choreographer for the past 10 years.

Rick's work can be seen at The Fine Line Gallery in Woodbury, CT.
