|D.K. Richardson has been a dedicated artist for over 46 years And although realism has been her focus, the true challenge of her craft is capturing the essence of character, beyond photography, the true identity. |
For over 3.7 million years humans have portrayed their story on cave walls, papyrus, linen, and silk in their fundamental need to leave their legacy for a measure of historical eternity.
Influenced by masters of their craft, such as Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Rubens, and Vermeer, Richardson continually strives to obtain a higher level of
proficiency in portraiture.
Dabbling in impressionism and non-representational works, she always returned to her love of realism. Her work is a hybrid of contemporary and classical portraiture.
Native to Texas, Richardson resides in Austin.
She is a member of The Austin Pastel Society serving as Publicity Chair, The Portrait Society of America, serving as Co-Ambassador of Texas, and the Cecilia Beaux Forum.
