Rick Bruner was born and raised in Iowa and never got over it. He was a less than an outstanding student throughout his precollegiate days and spent nearly every vacation attending summer school. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa and his MFA from Wayne State University in Detroit. Since 1990, he has been Coordinator of the Photography/Computer Imagery Program at Shepherd University and was Chair of the Department from 2000 – 2003. He has had numerous International and National solo and group exhibitions and his work is included in public and private collections.
