Rick Bremness

Rick Bremness is a visual artist who was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and has an appreciation for nature and the outdoors. His work as a director of photography for many network television documentary programs has developed his comprehensive understanding of composition and light.

 

Rick graduated from the University of Alberta Visual Arts program where he developed his artistic style and where he was the recipient of the Constance McFarland Award.

 

His love of nature and the Canadian landscape has been the inspiration for many of his paintings. Bold brush strokes combined with an unexpected combination of colours create spirited images that leave a lasting impression on the viewer.

 

Rick is active in the arts community as a member of the Society of Western Canadian Artists, and the Edmonton Potters' Guild.
