Richard Greathouse graduated from the Florence Academy in 2011, after which he completed the 4th year of advanced studies under the guidance of the head of the school, Daniel Graves. Since then he has been teaching at the school in Florence where he has also maintained his own studio. As of the summer of 2014, he has moved back to the United States to continue his career as a painter, as well as teach at the FAA's new branch in Jersey City.

Since finishing his studies, he has been focusing mainly on depicting people, in both large and small scales, with the intention of exploring different techniques as a means to better express the visual sentiments that stimulate him.
