Rick Filler was born in Montreal, Canada in 1951. He graduated from Sir George Williams University in 1972 and went on to manage an art gallery in Ottawa for 11 years. He also guided photography tours to remote wilderness areas in Canada.
Filler’s love for photographic imagery is matched by his love of flowers and gardening. He began gardening at the age of five when his father gave him a small space in the garden and let him choose seeds from a seed basket. Many of his flower subjects are grown in his own backyard garden.
Rick Filler continues to be fascinated by nature and always tries to look at the unusual in the every day. He gets pleasure in photographing the things that he values – the things that he hopes will be preserved. Rick’s mixed media panels are on display at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, Ontario.
