Richard Loffler is a life-long Canadian who spent his childhood in Regina and loved exploring the natural world from an early age, having been allowed as a city boy to spend much time on an uncle's farm. "Working from life affords me controlled confidence. No questions go unanswered. My approach is traditional with impressionistic flavor. I try to capture the character of my subjects at moments of instinctive gesture, while controlling design and composition to present a grace to each piece. To study from life allows me simply the truth; it affords me the ability to pursue my passion as a life long venture."
