The couple married and moved to New York City. In 1941, the family moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where she lived until just before her death in 2009. Richards painted miniature portraits and designed postage stamps. In 1953, she was awarded the medal of honor by the National Association of Women Artists and The National Association of Women Artists Prize at the organization's 1962 Annual Exhibition. Her miniature portrait of the prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay was the basis for a U.S. postage stamp, issued in 1981.
