 ” I love what I do and it shows.” 

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Richelle’s passion for art and drawing began as a child. She received her formal training in fine art at Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri. and graduated in 1982, already having been hired several months earlier as an illustrator in the advertising department of a major corporation. After several years there, she decided to work on her own and, in 1987, began to freelance, producing illustration and design artwork for many clients, both locally and nationally. Also during this time, she taught several Fashion Illustration workshop sessions as a guest artist at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

In 1997, she developed a profound interest in architecture and began to focus her energy and talent to specialize exclusively in house portraits, creating truly beautiful works in watercolor and pen & ink. Her extensive portfolio contains a wide variety of properties – grand, medium and small – as well as commercial buildings, schools and churches. She also has donated her artwork to many worthwhile charities and organizations in the St. Louis area and beyond. Her eye for detail, along with a true artist’s sense of aesthetics and beauty, make her portraits truly special.

“My goal is to create a beautiful representation of each home, which captures its distinctive character and charm as well. It is so gratifying when I receive phone calls and notes from recipients who let me know how pleased and touched they are by their house portraits. It’s a good feeling to know I provide a personal and meaningful piece of art that brings joy and special memories to its owner.”

Richelle resides in Oakville, a suburb of St. Louis county, with her husband and children.
