Rich Kenny • Village Galleries Maui


Rich was born in New Jersey and relocated to southern California at age seven. After growing up in California, he received his BOA degree in Architecture and Interior Design from the University of Idaho.  He lived in Santa Barbara for many years where he worked for architectural firms as a draftsman.  A life-long artist and art lover, Rich became a full time painter in 2005 after being inspired by attending a watercolor workshop in Bend, Oregon. Afterwards, he purchased 100 sheets of watercolor paper and has been painting ever since. He participated in art shows throughout the western United States and  painted landscapes and cityscapes in Mexico, Hawaii and throughout the Southwest. Maui has been home since 2011 and currently provides Rich with endless  inspiration for his sun-filled, vibrant paintings.
