Meeting Artist

Richard Zizzi moved to Arizona with his family when he was four years old. By age eight, he had developed an interest in birds and was drawing and painting them. His interest in Arizona wildlife and birds started with some inspiration from 1972-1973 Arizona Highways, featuring artist Larry Toschik. Richard currently resides in Phoenix, where he is a conservationist, an avid bird researcher, bird artist and empirical designer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in visual communication.
