Ricki Mountain is an independent artist living in Northern California. She has emerged as one of West Coast's leading abstract expressionist painters. She works with several different media to create colorful abstract compositions on paper and canvas. Many of Mountain's paintings are based on geometric shapes that intertwine and overlap one another.
Surface texture adds visual interest and dimension to her work in addition to painted collage elements, bits of handmade paper, steel mesh and pencil. Mountain's art invokes an emotional response through loose patterns to create visual accents within her color fields, all which are consistent with her signature style.
Stepping outside the standard artist-gallery business model, Mountain has an eclectic style and has gained a reputation as a prolific creative resource. Mountain is regularly commissioned to create custom paintings, prints and interior accents for retail and commercial clients.
Her artwork has been shown nationally and is in Private and corporate collections in both the United States and Europe.
