This whimsical art card features the serene Green Heron artwork by Northern Tutchone artist Richard Shorty. Born in 1959, Shorty is sought after for his signature style that incorporates both Northwest Coast formline elements and naturalistic wildlife settings. In Northwest Coast Indigenous cultures the Heron is known to be a “lucky charm” for successful fishing and a symbol of grace, elegance, and patience.

Richard Shorty was born in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory in 1959 and belongs to Northern Tutchone Tribe. Richard is a self-taught artist, who in the early 1980s, started painting West Coast Native design and soon developed his own distinct, style, using the wildlife form of the animal and adding his native design on the inside of the form. By now, stores were asking for and purchasing his work.

Over the years, Richard has moved around – Vancouver Island, Richmond, Whitehorse, always returning to Vancouver. Today, Richard is one of the most sought-after Native artists, with works in many galleries throughout. He is very versatile, working on drums, paddles, masks, rattles in addition to his paintings. His pieces are collected internationally.
