After earning a BFA with a concentration in painting and printmaking from the University of Michigan, Richard Tuschman moved to New York City in the spring of 1979. He worked there for the next twelve years as a graphic designer and pursued a career as a painter and sculptor, exhibiting his work in New York and across the country. He began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990â€™s developing a signature style that synthesized his interests in photography, sculpture, painting, and printmaking. Soon after, he launched a career as a freelance photographic illustrator. His work found a wide audience in the commercial sector, and has since been featured on the pages of magazines, annual reports, book jackets, and catalogs for clients such as Adobe Systems, The New York Times, Random House, Microsoft, Sports Illustrated, and HBO, among others. His work has been recognized by, among others, American Illustration, Print Magazine, The AIGA, Photo District News, and Creative Quarterly. He has also lectured widely on his work and process, and has taught at Cuyahoga Community College, the University of Akron Myers School of Art, Maine Photographic Workshops, and Ringling College of Art + Design. He currently lives and works in Queens, New York.
