Richards grew up surrounded by artists, both in family members and neighbors. He, along with Mahonri Young and A.B. Wright, studied art under J.T. Harwood. After serving a mission to England for the LDS Church, Richards saved enough money to study art at the Academie Julian and then the rigorous and exclusive Ecole de Beaux-Arts in Paris. His artistic career was rich with portrait commissions, landscape murals, and formal distinctions in galleries around the world.
