Edward Riojas was born and raised in Grand Rapids, and still lives in the Grand Rapids area. He graduated summa cum laude from Aquinas College, where he earned a BFA with a major in Drawing and a minor in Printmaking. He has worked as a staff artist for The Grand Rapids Press for more than 26 years. Beside his secular work, Mr. Riojas' sacred work can be seen in church sanctuaries and private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada. His work has been published nationally and internationally, and a large body of work comprising hundreds of sacred illustrations is still being used to benefit teens and young adults through higherthings.org. Besides creating artwork, He frequently writes for the Grand Rapids Press, filling a role of art critic and occasional curmudgeon.
