Richard has been an artist for most of his adult life. He has works in several media, including watercolor, acrylic and oil paints, as well as in digital photography. His subjects have mostly centered around nature, pets, and travel. Extensive traveling, often with a backpack, has provided him many wonderful opportunities.
From the plains and mountains of East Africa and South America, and the farms and fjords of New Zealand, to the ports and gardens of Asia and Europe, many visions will remain forever with him.
Richard was born and raised in New York City. He lived for many years in North Carolina, the Pacific Northwest and New Zealand. Now retired from a practice in emergency medicine, he plans to continue traveling, painting and photographing full time for many years to come.
