Richard A. Muller was raised in New York and has spent many years enjoying the scenery of the Catskill Mountains and Mohawk Valley in upper New York State. He has also lived in North Carolina, California, and briefly in the Netherlands. He presently lives in rural Michigan. He studied for nine years at the Vincent Trotta School of Art in Flushing, New York. His inspiration comes both from the beauty of nature and from the classic landscape art of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In his spare time he researches techniques of the classic landscape artists of the British Isles, the Low Countries, and America.
Since moving to Lowell, Michigan in 2006, he has been a member of the Lowell Area Arts Council, serving on the Gallery Committee. Muller has exhibited works in the West Michigan Regional Competition (2007. 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014), the Mid-Michigan Art Guild Exhibition (2009), and ArtPrize (2014) and has given solo exhibitions in Grand Rapids, MI (2011, 2014), and in Lowell, MI (2010, 2012). He is also a member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) at <http://www.noaps.org/>.
