Born and raised in Cebu City, Philippines, Richie N. Vios hails from an artistic family Studying architecture, in 1995 he graduated with a bachelor's architecture degree and faculty member, teaching architectural design and presentation. In 2004 they decided to leave the Philippines in hopes of a better future in America,For the next five years, he worked closely as an architectural designer at a local architectural firm in Clearwater,Florida until his family decided to move to again in Baltimore,Maryland.Seeking to introduce more western architectural concepts in Southeast Asia, Richie returned to the Philippines by himself to share, develop, and construct many of the things he had learned from America. During the next five years there, in his spare time he refined and honed down a unique mastery of watercolor painting evident in all of his art to this day. In the summer of 2017 his family would move back down to the south Texas and after being away from them so long he made sure to be there for them in Victoria, Texas. that's where he knew he could passionately chase the American dream again not as an Architect but a watercolor impressionist and Pleinair artist.Currently a resident artist in Victoria Art league and conduct watercolor classes and workshops from Galveston, Houston, Victoria, Rockport and Corpus Christi mostly south of Texas.

Artist Statement 

I believe that the mark of a good artist is to be able to capture the different facets of life in his painting,the mode, ambiance, etc. In a sense, not just illustrating or recording what he sees but expressing what he feels. As a plain-air artist (outdoor painting), watercolor was the perfect medium of choice: handy, quick to dry, yet delivers a truly magnificent work of art. Trust me, if you paint with no fear and a smile on your face, you can paint a masterpiece every time!
