About the Artist
Richard Loffler was born and raised in Saskatchewan and absorbed the natural beauty of the prairie. Since boyhood, nature and wildlife have been integral parts of his being. Working with the Royal Saskatchewan Museum from 1978 to 2000 became the impetus for his artistic endeavors. He feels strongly that when art is nurtured with discipline and cast from the heart, it communicates in an emotional language that transcends cultures and provokes the movement of thought in thousands. He believes that art is an expression of our innermost thoughts, perceptions, and aspirations. He has been a member of the Society of Animal Artists and the National Sculpture Society since 1989.
What artist inspires you? Why?
There have been many artists in both present and past history that have accomplished great and wonderful works and have completed masterful creations. So I say as they all were ... grounded in all facets of technical ability and married to hard work. These are the artists I admire.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Simply said things just come to me and are given to me. Nature has opened her world to all of us. We just need to stop and look.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Italy and France have had a huge impact on me, basically, to show me how far I have yet to go.
