The artist: Richard Shorty was born in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory in 1959 and belongs to Northern Tuchone Tribe. Richard started painting wildlife at an early age, along with painting his favorite rock star and sports idol. In 1978, Richard moved to Vancouver. In the early 1980s, Richard started painting West Coast Native design and soon developed his own distinct style, using the wildlife form of an animal and adding his native design on the inside of the form. Richard’s reputation as an artist was growing, and galleries and shops were asking for and purchasing his work.
Over the years, Richard has moved from Vancouver Island to Richmond, B.C. and to Whitehorse, always returning to Vancouver. Today, Richard is one of the most sought-after Native artists, with work in many galleries throughout Canada. He is very versatile, working on drums, paddles, masks, rattles in addition to his paintings. His pieces are collected in North America and internationally.
