Born in Lincoln, Richard graduated from the University of Nebraska. “As a kid I was invited to take painting lessons on Saturday mornings in the university’s art department. The seeds were planted, and in time, others pruned and groomed me into an artist.”
Schilling worked 10 years as a part time dental officer on Holland America Cruise ships.
He serves as a short-term dental volunteer in developing countries. These experiences have provided unlimited opportunities for him to paint the local scene.
He is the author of
- “Watercolor Journeys: Create Your Own Travel Sketchbook”
- “Portraits of the Prairie: The Land that Inspired Willa Cather”
- “The Forgotten Edge of Russia”
