Considered by many to be America's "Dean of Rainforest Painters," Richard Sloan was born in Chicago, Illinois, where he attended the American Academy of Art.  He worked as an advertising illustrator before joining Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo as a staff artist.

After a 1966 sell-out one-man exhibit at the Abercrombie & Fitch Gallery in Chicago, Sloan left Lincoln Park to embark upon a lifetime of capturing images of the world's rainforest in paint.

Since his first trip to British Guiana (now Guyana) in 1969, he has made sixteen expeditions to Guatemala, Trinidad, Tobago, Belize, Mexico's Yucatan Penisula, the Amazon Basin and the Peruvian Andes.

His paintings, resulting from years of intense research, have been exhibited at The National Geographic Society's Explorers Hall, The American Museum of Natural History, The California Academy of Sciences, The Carnegie Museum, The Royal Scottish Academy and other museums and galleries throughout the United States. His work has been featured in Reader's Digest, Wildlife Art, US Art, National Wildlife, International Wildlife Magazines, and many other natural history publications.

Since 1979, his work has been included in over twenty Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum Birds In Art exhibitions. In 1994, the museum conferred upon Sloan the award of Master Wildlife Artist, the highest honor given to a contemporary animal painter.

Sloan's works are included in the permanent collections of The Smithsonian Institution, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, The Illinois State Museum, The Denver Museum of Natural History, and private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates.

Sloan has executed commissions for the World Wildlife Fund, including First Day cover and postage stamp designs for Trinidad, Tobago, Guatemala, The Philippines, and the Falkland Islands.

In late spring of 1998, the University of Arizona Press published The Raptors of Arizona, a 220 page volume on the birds of prey of the southwest, featuring forty-two of Sloan's paintings.

Richard Sloan's work appears in many books, including Wildlife Art - More Paintings of the Modern Masters, and Best of Wildlife Art, volumes one & two.  He is an avid SCUBA diver and underwater video grapher, and lives in Palm City, FL.
