River Hendricks

Biography

Artistic energy has been with me my entire life. I remember being a little kid and creating beaded bracelets and necklaces with my older brother, weaving neon-colored hot pads from a Christmas present one year and constructing elaborate tree forts with fierce imagination.

I began drawing at a very young age, progressing into painting in high school. Somewhere in between childhood and my 20Õs I took to djing and music production and it is here, that I picked up photography and graphic design. Even at that time I still had my hands in illustrations and various painting projects. 2009 found me leaving Florida and heading West to Colorado. This is where I re-found myself and re-kindled my passion for fine art.

In 2010, Ghost River Art was birthed in the west cliffs of Loveland, CO and I started to take my work seriously. My hands could not stop creating and my mind and heart could not stop learning new techniques in both painting and design. In 2014, I gathered enough courage to paint live for the first time at a small artistic gathering in Fort Collins, CO.

Since then, my focus, determination and intense passion has allowed me to create and share my work all over the world. I have been able to paint live with some of my favorite musicians: Rising Appalachia, Dirtwire, LeahSong, Ott, Phutureprimitive and Bibi McGill just to name a few.

I will continue to Raise the Vibration and hold the positive Light I want to see in others and the World. My endeavors will always be diligent, passionate and fiercely created in love, with an intensity of Lions – of Hawks – of Wolves – of the Sun.
