Randall Higdon draws upon his immediate surroundings and places visited for his inspiration. Being a long-time sailor has enabled him to experience the waters of inland lakes and Lake Michigan. Born and raised in Michigan, Higdon is a graduate of the Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, and has devoted his energies to fine art painting since 1978. On his work he states: "Simplicity is a characteristic in the majority of my paintings. I enjoy the physical act of painting so much, the passion to get going with paint and brushes overrides the desire to develop complex compositions."
