Recently, photographer Shaun Roberts shadowed Matt Ritchie throughout a normal day’s routine and the result is nothing less than a stunning portrait of a genuine, truly gifted artist.
Matt Ritchie lives and works in Castro Valley, California. He creates his art throughout the day - he’s done everything under the sun artistically, from illustration to miniature, hand drawn and painted sculptures which are currently on view in a solo show, “Confero,” at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, California until August 23rd - while also working full time as a Park Ranger for the city of Fremont.
