Bob Richey

Bob Richey

Bob Richey graduated from Penn State University in 1971, earning a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering. During a 25 year engineering career designing and analyzing aircraft structures with the United States Navy, Bob always maintained his childhood passion for creating works of art. Bob is mainly a self taught artist although he did study with several local professional artists during his early period with the goal of perfecting his own artwork to a professional level. His dream of someday becoming a full time professional artist came true in 1996, when he was able to take advantage of an early retirement offer from his engineering position.

Bob's passion for creating art led him first to watercolor before he finally settled on soft pastels as his primary medium. Bob truly enjoys drawing and painting with soft pastels. He usually concentrates on relatively small format landscapes and more recently interiors, completed in a single sitting. Bob likes to compare his drawings to a short story, communicating a simple theme, a subtle mood. Working in a modest scale allows him to explore many compositions and capture the essence of the moment on paper.  Bob's works put a strong emphasis on both composition and color.  Bob explores both rural and urban motifs.

Bob's work has won dozens of awards at both the regional and national level.  Bob awards include 5 awards from the Phillips Mill Art Show and two awards from the Woodmere Art Museum.
The artist's profile is maintained on the James Michener Museum's website under the category, "Bucks County Artists". Bob is one of only a few fine artists designated a master artisan with the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.

Bob was one of the 50 artists featured in the book, "Artists of the River Towns," by Doris Brandes.  The artist has also been featured in many magazine and newspaper articles including Bucks County magazine and Nouveau magazine.
