Richard Tore Schanche was born and raised in Minneapolis. Art was always a key facet of Rick's life facilitating a fine arts scholarship for him to study art at the University of Oregon. Upon graduation, he worked as an art consultant while continuing to study at the University of Minnesota. In 1985, Rick moved to Anchorage, Alaska; forever influencing his artistic subject matter.

Over the next 30 years Rick's work has been shown in Anchorage at various galleries. Rick has had numerous gallery shows around Alaska; Gig Harbor and Chelan, Washington; Eugene, Oregon and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

After two trips to the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and a trip to Hallo Bay with the BBC, Rick particularly enjoyed painting bears, Alaskan wildlife and landscapes. He has also done series of paintings of Native Americans, his children, the homeless and Shamans.

Rick recently moved from Anchorage and now lives and paints in McMinnville, Oregon.

"I start my work with a detailed realistic drawing (which I struggle with, drawing to me is the hardest part). I want the initial image precise for a firm starting point, so the sketch becomes an exercise in detail and concentration. Then I let go and let the paint flow. This is the fun part, the time of joy and meditation. Finishing the painting can also be a difficult time for me. I have to tighten up the brush strokes and put everything back in order. I feel that painting is like life. The beginning and end is the hardest part. The parts in between are fun and exciting."
