Richard Logan

Because of my upbringing, I was told from a very young age that I had to do something with my life that made money and art wasn’t it. I tried to work at something that interested me, I would dive into it and learn everything I could about it. Then I would get bored, look for something else and move on. I started to question who I was and what I was doing with my life. I was always interested in art; it was suggested that I go into architecture so I could make money. So I went to college to study architecture but at the same time I kept creating some form of art. I was painting and sketching all the time, trying photography, once again I was jumping around. After college I worked for an architectural firm for a while and then I ran off to the Caribbean following a dream I had as a kid of being a pirate – Long John Silver, young Jim Hawkins and all the high seas adventures of Errol Flynn. At some point, I started to realize that I didn’t have to do just one thing, that I could work on a lot of different things and sometimes all at once. That is where I started to get into art in a serious manner while running a dive shop, making boat deliveries and attempting to start a hydroponics farm. Now working in art almost exclusively, I am doing the same thing by working in different disciplines at the same time. I’m not sticking to one discipline but trying to work and express what I feel in whatever form that I think will convey the thought or emotion that I felt or saw or heard.
