About the Artist
Rick Silverman currently works in Ipswich at The Ipswich Center for Physical Therapy for over 30 years and lived in Ipswich for 25 years. Although he resides in Essex with his partner Kim Pedersen he keeps Ipswich close to his heart. Oftentimes found running, biking, kayaking or skiing in Ipswich trails and waterways. This keeps him close to nature and inspires many of the paintings in this gallery. Initially inspired by a portrait of his grandson Finn, his daughter Carly gave him a Father's Day present of oil paints. He then found his wife’s Robin’s former art teacher Paul George to show him how to use the oil paints in a natural setting. He acquired many of the photos were from friends including Phil Sachs, Nel Sogoloff and Karen Safford.
