Rick Cochrane Profile.

A self-taught artist who never stops studying and exploring new approaches to his painting voice.  An oil painter, Rick’s work is largely abstracted moving in and around representational art. 

‘The wonder of landscape painting comes from the deeply spiritual connection you make with place and nature. As a painter I think you become a medium between the painting and the soul of place. Painting is always a revelation with the best things often being accidental or perhaps guided mistakes’.

Rick has been a long-term member of Canberra Art Workshop, an artist collective in the Australian Capital Territory where he also tutors drawing, oil painting and print making. For the last 17 years Rick has run a weekly life drawing sessions and find no greater pleasure than nurturing the developing art practices of others.

In October 2023 Rick retired to dedicate himself to his art practice.
