Cleveland based artist Jeff Ritchie is known for making happy things for happy people. Under the moniker Fredpaints he has created art for clients all over the country. He is never satisfied to create only one kind of art and instead attempts to vary his styles of painting for every project. Whether it is large abstract murals for an office building, small personalized paintings for a nursery or gallery shows where he is allowed to stretch his imagination he has done it all. 
He takes inspiration from all of the geeky things he loved as a child. Using their inspiration to try and create pieces of art that seem like they could be from a larger world. And every now and then putting those geeky things into his art to show his love and respect for all that came before him.
