'I love my work; while it can be very challenging it is equally rewarding. I was key makeup artist on a feature film about Alzheimer's disease. For about a year before filming, I studied tons of case studies and visited several convalescent homes and hospices to see people who were afflicted with the disease. I needed to see in person what effects the disease has on the skin and the features of the face. While it was difficult subject matter to see and learn about, I feel it was critical to create a true and honest representation of the disease. No artist can nail down those details unless they see and experience them first-hand.'
Summer 2017 Richard served as a guest artist for the California State University Summer Arts Program. Lecturing at Fresno State University and University of Southern California, Richard was able to use his on-set experience to help actors put their best image forward when entering the film and commercial acting arenas.
