Richard Dorbin was raised in Santa Fe, Mew Mexico, USA. His father a painter, his step-father a photographer. his mother a thespian. It was under this creative upbringing that the seeds of becoming a painter were germinated.
Richard spent 3 decades in Maryland as a self-employed photographer when a 'plein air painting festival' was started in his home town of Easton. This re-introduction to painting kindled anew a desire to paint. Ever since that reawakening, Richard has traveled near and far painting what moves him. He now makes his home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
