About David Ruimveld

David Ruimveld is a self-taught artist, from Michigan. Ruimveld works with acrylic paints, using many washes to create stunning images of Angling, Sporting, and Wildlife Art. With a myriad of a watercolor style to his artwork and various fly-fishing paintings for sale, the studio offers something for any style. Ruimveld's paintings and prints are available for sale through many galleries, fly fishing shops, sporting outfitters, and private collections. While he is well known for his paintings of the "Famous Rivers" series, he also enjoys creating images of bird dogs and upland game.

In addition to conventional 'paintings', Mr. Ruimveld has painted castings which are exquisite! His "Brook Trout" casting adorns my office and is one of the most 'asked about' artworks by my visitors.

David's artwork is available as originals, Giclee Editions and Lithographs. Among my favorites are his Famous Rivers Collection. I proudly own the "Pere Marquette" which he painted in 1992! Below is a sample of his artwork and clicking on any of them will take you to David's gallery of fine work.
