Richie was born Derby and loves to paint. When Richie got older, he moved to Kununurra to live with his cousin (sister in Aboriginal Law) and started to go to Kununurra TAFE. In 2020, Richie joined Waringarri Arts as a volunteer artist. Since then, he paints at Waringarri Arts every day. Richie draws on his experience of growing up and living in Kununurra, combining traditional subjects with the everyday. Richie is also a massive West Coast Eagles fan and always wears his footy cap.
