    About Richard Stocker

    A native of Detroit, Michigan, Richard Stocker was a Cass Corridor artist and photographer for Fifth Estate Magazine in the 1960’s. He studied art at the Vancouver School of Art, York University, and The Art Institute of Chicago. In his early thirties, Richard made his way west to become part of the burgeoning natural healing movement. For 35 years he has maintained a Rolfing practice. Through his somatic work, Richard brings freedom of movement back to his clients’ bodies. His art also explores movement and freedom.

    Richard’s work has appeared on the cover of Tiferet Journal, at Art Prize 2015, in the art collection of Detroit Receiving Hospital, and in the homes of private collectors. In the spring of 2016, he was a featured artist at The Detroit Institute of Arts and The University of Michigan Museum of Art for his innovative work creating community through coloring.

    A native of Michigan, Richard lives on the Leelanau Peninsula with his wife and can be found daily either in his art studio or exploring this beautiful area with his camera. To inquire about his work, email him at partlycloudy@rstocker.com

    All outdoor canvases are available for purchase and a percentage of the proceeds will go to The Old Art Building and its community art programs.
