About the Author
Rick Mittelstedt has been creating artwork professionally for over thirty years. His first efforts at drawing caught the attention of his 5th grade teacher who thought it was inappropriate for him to create sketches during class. That trip to the principal’s office only inspired him to continue to draw and sketch…but his next efforts were comic book superheroes. He still has the personal letter from Stan Lee encouraging him to continue drawing which further motivated his artistic pursuits.
His artwork helped pay his way through college, completing a Bachelor of Science Degree in geophysics; Masters Degrees in Space Science and Ancient Semitic Languages and later advanced doctoral study in Ancient Archaeology.
His work experience as a geophysical analyst traveling throughout the southwestern United States and his work at NASA during the first Space Shuttle flights inspired his early oil paintings. Over a 1000 of his art pieces hang in private personal collections, as well as, private corporations and government space agencies throughout the United States.
Fifteen years ago while exploring the ancient archaeological ruins in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon, his artistic efforts began to merge with his education and his creative artwork began to take on a voice of inspirational fantasy. His new work on the Genesis Project and science fiction and fantasy artwork are expressions of that voice.
Rick Mittelstedt creates his artwork in association with a group of other artists affliated with Mountaintop Vision Studios secluded in the Rocky Mountains.. He works in traditional oil media on linen and canvas, but has expanded his creativity to the digital media.
He lives in an off -the- grid, self -sustainable home he built with his own hands [with alot of help from his family and close friends] . His studio is located high in the Rocky Mountains where he lives with his family, four blue heelers, and assortment of friends like bears, elk, deer, chipmunks, blue jays, and bobcats.
Rick Mittelstedt, passed away on July 8, 2014, but he will live on in our hearts and in the sharing of his works.
