About the Artist
Rick Daskam’s paintings have appeared in Art Galleries and Juried Exhibitions through out the Connecticut and New York area. In 1998, he followed his passion of painting plein air, and spent his time painting landscapes and farms in the local area surrounding his home.

In 2002 Rick first visited Monhegan Island and fell in love with its rugged beauty. Returning every year for a week of “sun up to sun down” painting, the artist has produced some of his most memorable works.

Mr. Daskam is on the board of the Hudson Valley Art Association. In 2004 he began entering Juried Art Exhibitions and Museum shows. Preferring to express his passion in Oil, Mr. Daskam’s works have garnered him numerous awards including the, The Collectors Award from the Butler Museum of American Art, the Claude Parsons Memorial Award for Landscape from the American Artists Professional League, and the Frank Vincent Dumond Award for Best Light and Atmospheric Effect from The Hudson Valley Art Association.

Rick makes his home in Southbury, CT with his wife Paula and their 15 year old daughter Alex.
