The 56 year old artist grew up in Oceanside, and has been a Long Beach resident for the past 28 years. Having lived by the sea all his life, Richard finds the ocean to be a poignant metaphor for Life - calm and tranquil one day, raging and turbulent the next.
Art has been the driving undercurrent of Richard's life; taking up drawing at the age of 25, and painting at the age of 33. After a successful career in IT with Citibank for 25 years, Richard is now semi-retired, and pursuing his lifelong passion – oil painting!!!
His pursuit in his work is to seek himself out in whatever he sees.
