Rick Fitzsimons

Born in Bristol, Connecticut, where he now lives with his wife Bonnie, Rick’s interest in art emerged as a young child. Endless hours of drawing occupied much of his time as a youth. Although fascinated with the different aspects of art, he never thought he would make it his livelihood.

His background in Business Management led him on an unusual path, circling back to the world of art. Rick and his dad opened an Awards and Sign shop in their hometown. Not long after, customers would request new Logo designs for their businesses, which led to applying the images to large signs and vehicles. This service soon began to include painting various landscape pictorials on the signs. As a result, his love for creating and painting was rekindled.

For the pure joy of making art, Rick soon began painting canvas after canvas of landscape and portrait works, which he displayed at his establishment. Almost immediately, but much to his surprise, customers enquired about purchasing his art. At that time, the lights in his mind went on. He asked himself, “Is it possible that one can actually earn a living by doing that which was never considered to be work?” The answer apparently was yes.
Fitzsimons soon began publishing a few of his originals as limited edition prints. Today, Rick Fitzsimons continues to paint numerous, beautiful works that reflect a mastery of form and an intricate involvement with light.

An avid reader with a voracious appetite for museums and the wide range of masters such as John Singer Sargent, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, Norman Rockwell, Morgan Weistling as well as a host of other great artists have inspired him.

Indeed, the powerful and reminiscent beauty of Fitzsimons’ paintings are also due in large measure to looseness, honesty and faithfulness of his style. Rick’s paintings embrace a range of subjects, most prominently that which inspires him at the moment. He is at his best with subjects from everyday life, genre subjects, sacred-idyllic landscapes or figures in quiet repose, reflection or thoughtful isolation.
