Richard Arata


My name is Richard Arata. I’ve been a professional artist in Sonoma county for over 20 years. I currently design souvenirs for locations all over the country. I sculpt wood and paint to express myself on a personal level and to break away from the confines of a computer screen. I am an illustrator with experience designing anything from living space to custom tattoos. If there is a concept inside a client, I’m the one who reveals it. My work varies from logos and corporate identity to soulful expressions on a very personal level.
