Wholesale~Rick Steber Books & Merchandise
Rick Kelley's wildlife and African art is a visual journal of his life's travels, experiences and adventures. Every creation evokes a fond memory of the wildlife Rick admires, preserves, and respects. Rick Kelley's approach is to capture the emotion in each animal, whether it is the serenity of the loon, the majesty of the bald eagle or the stealth power of the gray wolf.
These visions and strong emotions coupled with Rick Kelley's scientifically and proportionately correct images have made him a nationally recognized and critically acclaimed wildlife artist. Rick Kelly began his quest to be an artist out of a love for nature at the early age of ten. He continued to paint through school, and after graduation Kelley took advantage of his father Don Kelley's transfer to Montana.

Kristi's Garden An art gallery owner in Colorado made Rick aware of a 9 year old girl named Kristi with cancer. Kristi's mom was a single parent and was having a hard time paying medical and living expenses.
Rick immediately wanted to do something to help the family. Through the gallery owner, he contacted Kristi and asked about her favorite colors and animals. Rick Kelley composed "Kristi's Garden" that included the little girl's favorite colors and animals with special emphasis on the color purple, bunny rabbits and butterflies.
Rick gave the original to Kristi and galleries across the country sold the prints as a benefit for Kristi. Enough prints were sold to cover all of her medical expenses.
