Randy’s interest in art began in grade school and explored through alternate studies included design and architecture. Upon entering college, he found more interest in the expression of the human form with painting and sculpture.
All the while showing in several venues in Northern California Randy’s art has never been bound by a single style or category. His reputation as an artist with broad style and talent, his art knows no boundaries. Many works designed as an experience, bring people typically intimidated by art, into Randy’s paintings and sculptors through interaction. Doors, fixtures, mechanical elements allow observers to design their own impression and unique view of the artwork.
Randy’s perspective in the arts has been shaped by working with numerous galleries designing exhibitions and selling local and internationally recognized artists . In 1999 Randy and his new wife, Laura Lee, moved their lives to Barcelona, Spain.
He spent that year studying at the prestigious Escola Massana in the heart of the old city’s Gothic district. Randy quickly earned recognition and was the only American to receive invitation to participate in the group exhibition at the Josep Canals gallery in the village of Sant Cugat Espana.
On August 30th, 2005, Olivia Morel Brennan, Randy's "Little Miss Magic" was born and immediately brought inspiration to his artwork given her regular presence in his studio.
Through observation, poetry, culture, and travel, Randy’s body of work and private collectors of the same, continue to grow. Presently, Randy, his wife, daughter, and cat, Boots, live in Sacramento, California.
Randy's current work is inspired from all things mid-Century. From the strange funny characters taken from Arcade games. Board games, Political propaganda, Modern design, Architecture and urban development. By Placing these Characters and manipulating these characters in a contrasting, more vulnerable or sensitive environment has been Randy's recent direction.
