Richard Heller Blueprints

book“Our experiences breed what we become,” says Richard Heller. In his book, “Blueprints,” Heller has produced an extremely honest and courageous search for significance in his life and like all books we find meaning in, I found myself reflected on his pages. Maybe in drawing us in, Heller makes us co-conspirators. As he says, “The art we create remembers our name.” Very accessible, it’s one of the best books I’ve read in quite a while.

In this fully engaging and lively discussion, you get to discover along with me, who Richard Heller is.  -Perry Scott Woodfin

As a sculptor, his bronze works are as varied as his writing, from a holocaust survivor to a series of wolves. Throughout this time, he has built things, including his own home in the Hollywood Hills.

Heller was born in Los Angeles and now lives in Washington State.

Richard has spent most of his life on horseback, skis, bike, or on foot in California’s High Sierras, Alaska, Mexico and recently the Highlands of Scotland. He worked as a farrier and blacksmith for thirty-five years.
