Richard Fillhouer was born in 1950, in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Starting with a large palette filled with fist-sized piles of raw paint, he creates canvases rich in texture and bursting with an astonishing kaleidoscope of color.

Painting directly from life, artist Richard Fillhouer fills his canvases with bold, luminous strokes of color. A master with the brush, he believes that the application of the paint is as important as the subject matter.
