About the Artist
Jolanda Richter was born in 1971 in the Netherlands. Aged three the family moved to Hamburg, at age six to Vienna, her real home town. Jolanda Richter quickly took up art and music. She was admitted into the 'University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna', Professor Wolfgang Herzer, where she studied the cello for five years. Since childhood Richter also displayed impeccable rendering skills, but as she grew older music and performance consumed her time. Longing to paint again, she enrolled at the University of Applied Art in Vienna in 1994, master-class for painting and graphic by Professor Wolfgang Hutter. In 1999 she graduated under Prof. Wolfgang Herzig. She interpreted the classical theme 'Francesca and Paolo', due to Dante Alighieris 'Divina Commedia', creating a four-part picture cycle about love and death. Since 1993 numerous exhibition activities in groups and individual leaded Jolanda Richter through USA, Austria, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. By now Jolanda Richter lives and works as freelance-artist near Vienna.
