Jack Richeson & Co. Inc.
The very first time a young Jack Richeson met an artist, the seeds of a dream were planted. The first buds resulted in a strong desire to own one of these precious miracles he watched artists create. As a young man and soon one with a growing family, it was a faraway dream. It would be years before Jack owned his first painting, and each year the yearning grew stronger.

In the early 1980s with a small start-up company called Jack Richeson & Co., Inc, Jack became fast friends with well-known watercolorist Zoltan Szabo and a young Colorado painter, Stephen Quiller, who was developing quite a reputation of his own. These friendships offered Jack the opportunity to be able to own his first real paintings. With each painting his hunger for more paintings grew as did his passion to support the artists who painted them.
