Richard Kooyman

I live and work in Northwest Lower Michigan with my wife, the artist Melanie Parke,
I make paintings and drawing because I believe art can change the world by changing how we think and look at the world. 
My current paintings reference ancient and neoclassical images where I have removed the patriarchal from the picture. 

I also am project manager for The Provincial which is an artist run project space in our studio complex. 

We welcome studio visits by appointment.  Paintings can be shipped on approval anywhere in the US.
