Richard P. Tenia, II
Richard P. Tenia II was born in New York City. He grew up throughout the east coast and more recently Maryland due to his mother’s military career. Richard is 16 years old and recently concluded his sophomore year at Hammond High School where he was recognized with a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Art. His keen eye for details and natural artistic abilities are reflected in his sketch book drawings.
Since a young age, Richard has explored various art forms (both visual and performance). He has studied Taekwondo for four years, achieving a 2nd Degree Black Belt from the World Champion Martial Arts Center. In addition, he has kept himself well-rounded by exploring violin lessons, African djembe drum lessons, Robotics, Cross Country track, and Sound/Music Design. As Richard transitions to his junior year of high school, he looks forward to learning how to create his own music and artwork covers.
