Born in 1951 in Paterson, New Jersey, the first son of a World War II marriage between an American paratrooper and an English beauty, Richard was raised along with three brothers in Decatur, GA.
He studied drawing and painting at Atlanta College of Art, and received his welding certifications from Seminole Community College in Sanford, Florida. He has paintings and metal work in both private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
“All my work, whether painting or metal work, brings me to a healing and restoration in the exercise of God's gifts. In more recent years, the dialogue and physical struggles of working in metal is one of the results of this act of faith and thanksgiving, coupled with the necessary discipline to see it through.”
