BIO
Richard B. Riley grew up on a 200-acre, family farm in Kentucky and learned to draw and paint as a youth. Throughout high school and college Richard was featured in numerous national-level competitions and shows including an international tour sponsored by the American Red Cross. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a BFA. Richard then went on to start his own company specializing in the manufacture of sculptural metal embossing dies for paper products achieving key supplier status for the number two and three greeting card companies in the world. After a quarter of a century in this field, he decided it was time to make a change and to think about pursuing what he enjoyed doing the most: painting and taking pictures in Maine. Richard and his wife, Pamela, first came to Maine on their honeymoon many years ago. After that memorable visit they began to dream about relocating to Maine someday and owning a bed & breakfast inn. Dreams became reality in late 2009 when they bought the Hodgdon Island Inn in Boothbay, Maine. Richard has spent the last few years painting, drawing and photographing the subjects near and dear to him – the farm as it was and as the community is today, his and Pamela’s favorite places in and around Mid-coast Maine and special places in his heart - working from memory or from his massive collection of photographs in his studios at home either at Hodgdon Island Inn or in the Piatt-Fowler Stone House which was built in 1817 and is listed on the National Register.
