Meet The Artist

Richard's education in creating artwork began when he was very young. From a multi-generational family of artists, he learned classical techniques. He was fortunate to study under some of the finest illustrators of our time in upstate New York, including an illustrator for Marvel Comics. He studied under premier water-colorists and other nationally published artists. While in high school he was commissioned to paint portraits and create illustrations for magazines. One of his works was chosen for the select Governor’s art exhibition in the then new state Capitol in Albany, New York.

Fine & Commercial Artist
Team Building Leader

He continued his studies at New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts working alongside those artists who would become famous in our time. This gave him the chance to explore all types of media and intimately watch how others worked. His instructors comprise a who’s who of modern art, design, illustration, commercial art, and more. 

For over 40 years he incorporated his artistic skills into producing work for a wide range of commercial marketing projects. This included planning new startups, development of proposals and renderings, product design and development, how-to manuals, catalog sheets, trade show backgrounds and displays, and much more. He has literally created thousands of projects in two dozen industrial categories obtaining more than $4 billion in contracts and sales for clients.

For leisure, he taught art classes and painted. He has worked on masterpiece reproduction and is striving to create some lasting works. In the summer, he has provided seminars for motivated students, and now offers these services for corporate retreats, department team building, special events, dinner parties, and more.

He is currently available to produce custom art and installations for commercial and residential properties, including murals, panels, doors, furniture, and more whether it is on drywall, plaster, concrete, glass, or other surfaces. He has even painted on fences, trade show displays, and built theater sets using trompe l'oeil techniques.
