Art + Science + Cool ▸
Painter and photographer Rick Lieder has been creating fine art and conceptual illustration for many years. His art has appeared on award-winning novels ranging from mysteries and science fiction, to books based on the X-Files TV series, to Newbery Award-winning books for children.
His clients include Bantam Doubleday Dell, HarperCollins, Berkley Books, Penguin Publishing, Simon & Shuster, Daimler Chrysler, Focal Press, Orion Magazine, Natural History Magazine, Bloomsbury Books, Random House and Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
His fine art has been exhibited in a variety of galleries in the Midwest, Canada, and the United Kingdom and include painting, photography, and digital art. The State of Michigan's "Art in Public Places" program purchased eleven of his photographs for permanent installation in Lansing.
Recently he has concentrated on a body of work centering on ordinary backyard wildlife. These photographs capture the unique qualities of light interacting with the natural world.
A nature picture book for all ages, STEP GENTLY OUT, is a collaboration with award-winning novelist and poet Helen Frost, published by Candlewick Press. For more information on the book, plus a book trailer, visit http://bugdreams.com/sgo/.
