Richard moved to California in 1995 and started painting for himself in a realistic style with a touch of Russian impressionism.
“I admire the Russian Impressionists, especially Nickolai Fechin, for their intense brush strokes that exude passion into their paintings. I also admire Norman Rockwell for his amazing drawing ability and the volume of work he produced in his lifetime.”Richard Stergulz

He teaches class four days a week at his art school and artist retreat called The Green Art House.
