Richard grew up playing hockey in Massachusetts, but now live in Texas, where he still plays hockey. The reason he moved to Texas was to get his Masters Degree in Medical Illustration. Instead of moving back home, he was offered a teaching job, so he decided to stay (He doesn't teach anymore).
Richard met Graeme, his husband, about 11 years ago. They got married exactly 3 years after we went on their first date, and not long after that, they decided to start a family. So, they became foster dads. It was an interesting journey - an emotional roller coaster with those 10 kids, but worth it.
They were fortunate enough to adopt their son Jacob. They feel so lucky every day to be dads.
Richard has always loved crystals and tarot and oracle cards (and drag queens and thunderstorms). He decided to finally create a deck. He planned and planned and mapped out card connections and researched and came out with Oddity Tarot. Then he decided to make a deck “experience”: an Oracle deck called Lucky Potion Oracle. And then the Companion Book happened. Exquisite Familiars was next, and he has about 7 other projects in his head waiting to become a reality.
Thank you for following, supporting Richard by buying decks and sharing posts, and joining him in his creative journey. Y’all are an amazing community.
