At the age of ten, Bud began to fabricate wooden marionettes and carve caricactures. At fourteen, he began art classes with Louise Cone, who was known for her portraits of Alabama governors, and a local portrait painter in the Birmingham area. Suzi drew from nature as a child and later took art classes from Lila J. Wells at Banks High School. Each of the Richards studied drawing, printmaking, painting, art history, and sculpture. Upon completion of their degrees, Bud returned to work in aeronautics and electrical engineering. Suzi, following the advice of Dr. Virginia Rembert, went on to complete a teaching certificate. Because of her interest in creativity, she pursued a Masters degree in Special Education in the area of Gifted and Talented. For many years she taught English to gifted and talented students and looked for ways to incorporate art experiences into the English curriculum for those special students.
