A Los Angeles based artist for 25 years, Riley has designed original art pieces for all walks of life. Her paintings and illustrations have been commissioned and purchased by celebrities, art collectors, and sold in her own gallery in Santa Monica California. A graduate of The University of Vermont in 1991 with a BA in Studio Art..... Riley credits one professor for propelling her career and self esteem.... Lynda Reeves McIntyre... thank you.
At the beginning of 2022, Riley decided to challenge herself to create an illustration a day FOR A YEAR starting with a single line. Hence, DOODLEINSANITY began! Currently, Riley has been accepted into the Ten Women Gallery in Santa Monica, California. You can visit the store and find Riley's work for sale as well as 33 other local women artists!
