Richard Menard Richard Menard was born in Edmonton, Alberta on December 19th, 1963. His early artistic expressions were in two-dimensional form.  Drawn to ‘black and white’ landscape photography, Richard spent extensive time as a youth photographing the river valleys near his home in Edmonton, Alberta.

After moving to Vancouver, BC, in 1985, he began painting abstract landscapes in acrylics, working in large (4’ x 5’) canvases.  When visiting Tofino, BC, in 1987, he tried his hand at carving and discovered his passion.
