Richard Haynes, Jr. was born in Charleston, South Carolina and grew up in New York City. He completed a MFA from Pratt Institute and a BFA in fine arts as a painter/print maker at Lehman College in New York City. He worked for CBS for several years as an art buyer for their publishing company, Holt Rinehart and Winston.

haynes artworkHaynes' paintings feature migrant workers, jazz musicians, sweetgrass basketmakers with the use of bold Caran D'ache color to saturate clean shapes and silhouettes, giving great expression to figures who, the observer may eventually notice, do not have faces.

Haynes' calls himself an American visual storyteller, and has said that he takes great pride in painting stories of those who are faceless in our society. The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts Fellowship will help him complete his new series of work on the Underground Railroad.
