Member Bio

Bobbie is a full time artist and art educator, always looking for new inspiration on her extensive travels. She creates in her Santa Monica home studio, as well as, her Palos Verdes Estates teaching studio. Bobbie was originally drawn to the West Coast by the University of Southern California and promises of learning from accomplished artists, art and academic scholarships and the LA art scene. Over a decade later, her art is featured in private collections in Florence, Kuwait, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and more. She initially gained inspiration working in advertising. Bobbie was entranced, yet repelled by the glossy images in magazines. Her blind contour paintings transform sterile, perfect images into whimsical satire. Currently, Bobbie draws inspiration from her Wildlife Biologist sister Lindsey Rich’s photography captured on hidden, motion activated cameras in Botwana, Africa. Bobbie recreates the scientific photographs in oil paint on canvas, adding a twist of personality and charm. The animals emerge from diverse mixed media patterns and unique decorative atmospheres. Bobbie Rich is also exploring the use of glass, depicting people and wildlife in stained glass windows, mosaics and mixed media works.
