About the Artist:

Born in Barrie in 1958, Richard has been painting and drawing since he was ten years old, developing his abilities on a self-taught basis until enrolling in the Fine Arts Department at the Ontario College of Arts four year program.

Since graduating in 1990, Richard has since opened and operated a small business in Orillia, Ontario.

Richard is the recipient of numerous scholarships and awards throughout his career including:
