Richard Shorty

Richard Shorty was born Southern Tutchone in Whitehorse, Yukon. He started his career with portraits, wildlife, and scenic realism. He now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. Richard has been an artist since 1965. With his artistic abilities maturing, he started Native Design in 1980, enabling him to create a new dimension in native art, showing traditional with realistic flair. Richard creates killer whales, wolves, and eagles, with an appeal that captures the moment.

Richard's first print edition appeared in 1987 with an enthusiastic response. The "Night Owl", "Big Catch", and "Alert Owl", are just a few of the limited edition prints that hit the market with an overpowering impact. Today, Richard carves such items as killer whale rattles and wolf or eagle paddles.
