Anne Worsham Richardsons love of nature and all living creatures was evident in her
watercolor paintings of wildlife and birds exhibited in her gallery in the historic
district of Charleston, South Carolina. Her ability to recreate nature in her art began
when she would entertain herself with drawing as a child in a highchair. As a teenager,
she was painting the neighbors pets and farm animals. "I would come home from
school and there would be a horse or something tied to the fence. I would ask Mother if
they wanted the head or the whole animal. Of course, the commission for the whole animal
portrait was more." Later after moving to Charleston, SC, Mrs. Richardson began
studying nature, especially birds, through the libraries, the museums, and field trips all
over the U.S. The career of South Carolinas most famous bird painter was launched.
Now the artist was granted a special Federal permit for the scientific study of birds as
they recovered in her sanctuary in Charleston, SC. In her detailed watercolors, you will
also observe many species of plant life the artist has studied for her works. The
paintings depict wildlife and their habitats.
From showings in museums and art galleries to an exhibit in a castle on
Germanys Danish border, Mrs. Richardsons paintings have been exhibited all
over the world. National Wildlife chose her "California Quail" as Art
Print of the Year. Anne Worsham Richardson is South Carolinas official painter of
the State Bird and Flower ("Carolina Wren and Yellow Jessamine") and the State
Butterfly ("Yellow Swallow-tailed with Wild Azalea"). In 1991, South
Carolinas Hall of Fame inducted Mrs. Richardson. The Artist presented a color slide
lecture to a wide range of audiences. The slide program "My Adventure with Birds"
illustrated her wonderfully entertaining experiences as a bird rehabilitator and
artist. She has lectured from college campuses to garden clubs. The artist has received
commendations for her work as a wildlife conservationist from the U. S. Department of
Interior. Anne Worsham Richardson hoped that her paintings may reveal to others in a small
way, "an appreciation, and respect for all life, and our need to protect our natural
