About Denise Richard Works of Art

Of a small town in Quebec, Canada, Denise Richards' artistic development had the normal university formation, with an added support of an international influence. Beyond these standards she was supported by indigenous and Taoist training and engaged the making of art in uniquely empowering ways. Learning with masters who held respect for  community standards held  a way for a making of art that  protected care. When compassionate care engages the influencing and the making of art – we reclaim  natural expression and health.

Denise Richards' work engages traditions of old with a heartfelt interest and environmental concerns. The term "Yugen" is commonly used as a way of expressing awe and feelings too deep or mysterious for words. Her artwork may be seen as a brief spiritual moment  - an experience of Yugen .
Her use of natural medium: paper, pastel and tempera in practice reflect a  fragile world powered by  nature -  caring  and  creative forces.

Thematically Denise Richards' work cares for community and environment of old traditions. Her present life in a coastal climate  and temperate rain forest offers her a close look at our natural world. These artworks are large drawings, set as gold for earth is our one resource for nourishment and the keeping of standards.
