Richard Salvucci of Brighton, Massachusetts started tracing comic book characters as a boy then drawing them freehand. After graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art, he became a freelance illustrator producing magazine illustrations with a speciality in covers for science fiction and fantasy books. For many years he has painted scenes of nature, animals and birds. He has had numerous fine art commissions, including Yankee Magazine, The New York Times, Massachusetts Audubon Society, and Wildlife Art Magazine. Richard has exhibited in many New England galleries and museums including the Bennington Center for the Arts, the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and the Norman Rockwell Museum. He’s primarily a painter of realism but also enjoys experimenting in different styles and formulating new ways of “seeing”. To produce his artwork, he uses a broad spectrum of mediums including oil, pencil and ink.
