ABOUT

Corbett Fine Art

Rick Corbett is a native of Northern Massachusetts where he still resides. At a young age, he discovered a passion for drawing. Being completely self taught, he learned to draw by reading books on the Great Master Painters, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Rembrandt, Artemesia, but it was the German Painter, Albrecht Durer that turned him to realism. After seeing Durer's illustration of "The Hare", he was hooked and knew that realism was what he wanted to achieve in his art.

With no formal art training, Rick spends hours upon hours perfecting his technique. "I am a lifelong student of art" Rick often says as he works to develop patience as he works toward his goal of achieving realism.


Rick is inspired not only by other artists but from life itself. "I am inspired by people, textures, smells, sounds, all my senses seem to come alive when I draw. My drawings take me on an artistic journey of self discovery. I feel my soul awaken when I draw. GOD has given me a gift and it's a gift I hope to use to bring people closer together. It's a gift I hope to use to capture the beauty that's in this World. I don't want my drawings to simply be pictures drawn on pieces of paper - I want my drawings to be a celebration of life".
