Name: Richard Banh
Bio: It was in a moment of serendipty that I happened upon pastel artist Richard Banh. I was doing a search for Denise Larue Mahlke, while updating the links on my blog – Denise’s link had apparently disappeared. Luckily I found the updated URL, but discovered Richard Banh in the process, as he attributed his artistic development to Denise on his website. So what little I know about Richard is gleaned from his own site. Richard took art classes for three years in 2007 thru 2009 from Denise Larue Mahlke, first intending to paint in oil. He was introduced to pastels during her classes and was intrigued enough to switch mediums. He took more workshops with Susan Carlin, Libby Peters, Bob Rohm, Rae Andrews and Rita Kirkman, and made such progress that he was awarded Best in Show for one painting and Honorable Mention for another in the Texas Pastel Society's "Celebrate Texas" 2011 Regional Juried Competition/Exhibition.
