Born and raised in San Jose, CA, Randy studied at the California College of the Arts. Since then he has honed his craft for more than 20 years working as an illustrator. His work, appearing in games such as Magic: the Gathering, has gained him international recognition and a base of collectors for his original paintings in more than a dozen countries.
In 2005, he left his home state and spent a decade living abroad in Tuscany, the Cotswolds, Andalucia and New York City. All the while, he would indulge a love of landscape painting between commercial assignments. Residing now in Geyserville, CA, this series represents an increased focus on this genre of work.
He continues to work as an illustrator and on other personal series of artworks across various genres. For more on these other works, you can visit his other online home.
