I have been creating…it seems my whole life.

I am who I am.

Maybe at times I see things just a tad bit different…from the norm.

I have enjoyed learning how to do my artwork all on my own.

If someone else can do it…I will certainly try…and I will put my own twists and turns into my work to make it truly my own.

As I said…I am who I am…and I am ME!

    This is gorgeous, and it deserves both Zinger Features. I love the very light tones of her skin with just a hint of pink to bring out the 3D appearance. Her red lips are an exclamation and their highlight brings them to life. Great work Richard! Its a fave for me!

    This is wonderful. It’s not easy to capture her child-like fragility and vulnerability. Congratulations on all your features.
