About Gene Ritchhart

My name is Gene Ritchhart. I was born and raised in San Diego, Ca. I was one of those Navy brats ; my dad was a lifer. This is a term used to describe a career military person. Because of this I was one of those kids that spent a lot of time drawing. It always helped in the moves and the new schools.
After my dad got out of the Navy I spent the next four years in El Cajon, Ca. It was here that I began a formal training in art. I had the luck of having an art teacher that recognized I had a little talent and infected me with the painting bug. Because of him my love of art continued to grow. After high school I had wanted to join the Navy like my dad. But pop told me try a different branch and make my own stories instead of trying to see where he had made his. He'd told me the Navy just wasn't the same anymore too. So, I joined up with the Army. I served in West Germany as a driver of an M113 Armored Personnel Carrier in a mechanized infantry unit. While there I saw several museums that further had an influence on my love of art. I also did a lot of art work in the Company areas for my commanding officer. I even managed to sell a few pieces to some of the Non Commissioned Officers in the company. That was where I got the bug that I could actually make a dollar or two selling my work.
After the Army I used my GI Bill to go to college and earned my A.A. Degree in art. Again for the second time in my life I'd had the luck of having instructors that influenced me in the field of art. Although I didn't go any further in my education, I have continued to learn my craft from fellow artists here and there.
I am currently living in a small town in Washington state ; a little place called Elma about thirty minutes west of the capitol, 'Olympia'. Since those early days I've also taken up photography. My photos are for sale also but in reality I use my photography as an extension of my painting. Please feel free to look thru my work.....you'll see slow improvements in every other piece. Please note that as an artist I try very hard to make my work affordable to the working person. One of the things that always bothered me growing up was that I could not afford to buy artwork from other artists. Even the prints seemed to be so far out of reach I couldn't afford 'Fine Art'. I hope that you see something that you like....more importantly that you can afford. Please feel free to contact me thru this site. Thanks for looking!
