Healing With Art With a Heart

My Biography

Hi! My name is Richard F. Fuertes, and I am an artist I was born and raised in San Narciso, Zambales, Philippines. I am a naturalized American citizen, and I love to sing, dance, paint, and play the piano.

My healing art gallery by Richard F. Fuertes  is my humble home art gallery where I share my personal journey and express my deepest emotions. Making art helped me through my emotional trauma, heartbroken relationships, and accepting my own identity. I use acrylic and oil pastel on canvas, creating mixed media art. 

Children and adults have shared their love for my work, and I also offer these to health care professionals and college professors. My work has also been featured on the following:
