Introducing Rippey Art
Welcome to our website!
Michael Rippey is an oil painter with studios in Holland, Michigan, and Fernandina Beach, Florida. He began painting seriously in 2013, after retiring from a 37-year career in the golf industry. His companies developed, operated and/or provided consulting support to approximately 300 golf courses and country clubs throughout the U.S. and in several other countries.
Michael painted occasionally throughout his business career, but since 2013, oil painting has been his major focus, and he has developed a new career as an artist. His style has evolved primarily through self-study and experimentation, but he also has benefitted from classes and workshops with accomplished artists like James Brandess, Dawn Stafford and Jerry Fresia. Representative of Michael's typical subject matter and his evolving painting style, are the two paintings shown to the right:
"Fresh Snow," highlights the dramatic Lake Michigan dunes in Southwestern Michigan, where Michael paints in the summer months.
"Amelia Sunrise," is representative of the scenes Michael paints in and around Fernandina Beach, Florida, where he and his wife, Durenda, spend the winter months.
Michael is represented in Michigan by The Galleria, an innovative combination of working artists' studios and gallery exhibit space, located at 447 Washington St., in Holland, Michigan. Please visit www.Galleriaartandstudios.com, or better yet, visit the Galleria in person next time you are visiting Holland.
Michael's paintings also are displayed in a showcase just outside the popular Butch's Restaurant in downtown Holland. For purchase information on any of paintings in the showcase, or displayed here on our website, please contact either:
