A resident of Georgia, 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.
