Richard Des Jardins studied Fine Arts at Universite du Quebec and Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Quebec , Canada . His creative eye led him to a career in visual merchandizing for the home furnishings market and later took him to New York , where he applied his artistic ability to floral, set and interior design.
He was a free-lance set stylist and set designer for Modern Bride and Mattel Toys and since 1985 has been an adjunct professor in the Interior Design Department at the Fashion Institute of Technology. A painting course in the year 2000 and an exhibition of his work in two juried shows has inspired him to include painting in his creative expressions.
His abstract work has been characterized by geometric shapes and strong colors and in recent years the addition of collaged elements bringing detail and the unexpected to his paintings.
