Artist Bio

Palm Springs artist Richard Etts
From NYC, resident of Palm Springs for 44 yrs. Manufacturing and casting my designs for 30 years, working with fabric showrooms, window displays, Tiffany & Co., NY Fashion Group,  Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s displays. Donations of art work to charities and fund raisers, NYC, DC, PBS, Hathaway House, Angel view DHS, and others.
Self taught, Richard’s passion for creating art began in 1947 with colored inks, clay and plaster. Now painting with acrylics on canvas, his bold colorful abstracts are happy and energetic. His years of experience in sculpture, mold making and design, has given him a unique perspective of the positive-negative space, adopting this technique to his paintings and designs.

What kind of public art project do I want to work on?

Bringing happy colorful accents to the streets of Palm Springs, murals on buildings or paintings on objects.
