Richard began carving at the age of 18 (1974) with little training from other artists. He apprenticed with Doug Cranmer in 1978 and was hired as part of the team to carve the beams and planks for the big house at the U’mista Cultural Centre in Alert Bay, BC. Richard assisted with the replica of the Wakas Pole located at Brockton Point in Stanley Park during the 1980’s. His work has been seen in exhibits such as the group shows at the Gallery of Tribal Art, Vancouver, and his work is part of the collection at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, the Royal British Columbia Museum and many corporate collections in Canada, USA, Japan and Europe. In 2010, Richard won the British Columbia Creative Achievement Award in First Nations Art. Richard carves in red and yellow cedar and creates steam bent boxes, bowls, whistles, masks, rattles, and spoons. He is regarded as one of the best bentwood box-makers working today.
