Richard Wilson's involvement with art began at an early age, like most gifted adult artists. His talents were first recognized by family, friends, and classmates. By age 8, Wilson was drawing big trucks, action figures and cartoon characters for his classmates in his home town, Robersonville, NC. Under the mentorship and influence of his father, he continued to develop his artistic skills. After graduating from SouthWest Edgecombe High School in Pinetops, NC he attended Barton College to pursue his dream. There he studied Communications Art. He later received a degree in Advertising & Graphic Design from Pitt Community College in Greenville, NC where he currently resides.
