Introduction: I have won many awards at Belk and have been depended upon for concepts that I carry to reality. I was the senior illustrator at Belk with 6 illustrators that I supervised. When photography came into being for fashion I was promoted to art director and was the first to push and use digital photography. I am very proficient in retouch and image manipulation, illustration - both digital and by hand, love topography, and work in InDesign for layout and some graphics. I often shoot my own images with a Canon D5 and have all the studio equipment to shoot product. I can provide samples. Best of all - I love it! Everything: the people, the challenge, the medias. Since retiring I miss the work, the creativity and the people. So I've started One of a Kind Artwork where I can spend the time needed on a one one basis to make their creation really "one of a kind".

Barbara is excellent to work with! She took an extremely vague idea and made it reality. She was even patient with us as we made conceptual changes during the process. I look forward to working with her anytime graphics art projects come up!

Barbara was incredible. My non profit group was blown away. She was creative and so helpful. I have already passed her name into another client. SC

Barbara Richards is an amazing designer and artist. She helped me get my new business off the ground. She gave me a reasonable quote and stuck to it. Her work was always given to me on time. It surpassed all my expectations!! She worked with me, helped me formalize my ideas and created a whole package; logo, advertising, branding, and created some beautiful artwork that I will be able to use in several applications. I really enjoyed working with her and look forward to more projects together in the future!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    No - try to work within a client's budget, depending on the project I average between $20-$30 per hour. But I prefer a budget so I know up front what the limitations are. Artwork is about the subject (s) medium, time factor - so it varies. I try to make my work affordable to the client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Constantly! Read and study everything I can find. I am working with some new software from Adobe. It's impossible to learn all the software out there which is why I love the digital work so much - you are constantly learning new things that you can do now that wasn't available 10 minutes again.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    It's been my desire since I was a child! That and raising and showing horses!
