Richard is a native of Georgia and began drawing at an early age.
A high school art class introduced him to pen and ink which has been his staple ever since. A mechanical drafting degree later in life enhanced his enjoyment with ink as a medium and led to many commissioned works to preserve older buildings, some prior to demolishment.
Since moving to Colorado several years ago, he has expanded into watercolor in order to share the great beauty of this state. He currently resides in Broomfield with his wife Kim and trusted Lab, Rose and somewhat trusted Yorkie, Sweetie.
