Artist Bio:



My name is C. Randolph Bell (Randy). I was born in St. John's Newfoundland on May 30th., 1944


My education was aquired at Bishop Feild College, St. John's, Newfoundland and my continued education is from Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland.


My art education has been aquired via the Newfoundland Academy of Art 1956-1960. Studies also conducted at Instotuto Gallileo, France, Italy Spring 2001, and at the Savannah College of Art and Design Winter 2005.


To date I have atteneded several workshops with Janet Walsh, Charles Gruppe, Ushi Niner, Michael Chesley Johnson, Joyce & Don Nagel.


Many of my works are held in private collections in Newfoundland; South Carolina; West Virginia; Ontario; British Columbia; and Quebec.


My current favorite mediums are Oil and Pastel.


My works have been exhibited in galleries throughout Newfoundland, and the Art League of Hilton Head Society of Bluffon Arts


I have been painting landscapes in Newfoundland, Italy, France,and the Low Country for a number of years. 'With Landscapes, I try to capture the mood of the day in the skies and clouds. I work both in oil & pastels depending on the scene I wish to capture.



I also enjoy painting still life and the subjects are usually food items with interesting china or other culinary items. This probably stems from my love of cooking !!!


I continue to attend workshops to enchance my skills, get new ideas and get constructive critism from teachers and fellow artists.


I am happily married with 4 children and 12 grandchildren. I retired from my buisness holdings in 2002. My family and my art are the joys that fill my days and provide my inspirations.
