Richards awareness and understanding of his surroundings has established him as a very gifted painter of light. Movement and atmosphere are strong elements of his work, which he conveys with conviction. No one who views his work can fail to be inspired by his interpretation of the beauty that is all around us.
Richard was born in 1951 and studied at Harrow School of Art and Canterbury School of Art. Living in Dorset with his family, he draws a lot of motivation for his paintings from the invigorating landscape around him. Over the course of his career he has travelled widely and his works of Italy and France depict many well-known views.
His oil and watercolours are highly sought after and hang in many private and public collections including S.G. Warburg Plc, Crown Estates, St. Johns College Cambridge and Hambros Bank.
