About Jackie Richards

Jackie Richards is a self taught digital artist who uses her computer as a creative tool much the same as she uses her potter’s wheel, spinning wheel or jeweler’s saw. She began working with computers in the late 70’s, writing her own software programs as a personal challenge.
