REIF ERICKSON is a regional artist with works in public, corporate, and private collections throughout the Pacific Coast. Reif (pronounced ray-f) has been pursuing his art career for the last 35 years and contributes much of his success to his continuing practice of painting with pastels “on location” in what he calls FRESH AIR® painting. Through careful observation and technical expertise, Reif achieves masterful landscapes of his travels in California, Hawaii, the Southwest, China and France and England and Eastern Europe.

A native of Eastern Washington, Reif returned to university studies at the age of 26 and graduated with honors from Gonzaga University in 1981. Shortly thereafter, the Russian born colorist Sergei Bongart influenced Reif to paint outdoors.

In 1991 Reif was honored by the Pastel Society of the West Coast as a Distinguished Pastellist.
