Artist Statement

All time is precious, I spend it collecting stories and sharing them with all I create. Teaching only furthers my passion as I find security in knowing that I’ve guided becoming artists, and assuring our rich culture is to be shared always.


Born in Squamish, British Columbia in 1976, Richard has spent most of his life enjoying every medium available to fulfil his passion for art. Though always exploring all art forms, he remains focused on his love of acrylic painting and pine-needle basketry.

A member of the Lil’wat Nation (Mt. Currie, B.C.), he currently creates his work in N’Quatqua (D’Arcy, B.C.) Working out of his home, all remaining free time is spent teaching and sharing his gift with youth in surrounding schools.
