Jolanda Richter (M.A.), Painting and Graphics

Jolanda Richter was born in 1971 in Almelo, Netherlands. At the age of three, her family moved to Hamburg and then to Vienna when she was six years old. She quickly developed an interest in art and music and was admitted to the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, where she studied cello for five years.

Richter displayed impeccable rendering skills from a young age but as she grew older, she focused more on music and performance. In 1994, longing to paint again, she enrolled at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in the master-class for painting and graphics. She graduated in 1999.

Since 1993, Jolanda Richter has participated in numerous group and individual exhibitions throughout Europe and the USA. She currently lives and works as a freelance artist near Vienna.

1994-99: Study of painting and graphics at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

1999: Diploma from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
