Designer Profile

Rick Unger

Born in York, Pennsylvania, Rick started his artistic life early. Rick’s mother was amazed that, as a toddler learning to walk, he was already drawing pictures with advanced detail and accuracy.

Before his teens, Rick could paint portraits with striking accuracy in all media. After graduation Rick moved to Texas. With cattle and horse ranches it was a new experience. He felt that the life of a cowboy was a contrast to urban stress and painting cowboy life was an escape from the fast pace.

In the 80’s Rick traveled all across the U.S. and Canada demonstrating a graphic art technique he invented. It was featured in magazines and TV shows and designs were sold in a major chain store. In the 90’s he came full circle back to fine art, his real passion. Rick’s work has been seen and sold in galleries, shows and exhibits, licensing and websites. He has work in a museum in Pennsylvania and Colorado. Ricks western art has been on greeting cards with Leanin’ Tree and Horse Tales publications three times.

Rick and his wife had a small ranch in Texas and now live on a 400 plus acre ranch in Colorado. The beautiful San Juan mountains are truly an inspiration.
