Artist and Photographer
Before painting, Richard spent 40 years as a graphic designer, specialising in corporate branding and marketing graphics for clients including Glaxo, Woolwich, Thames Water, British Gas, NHS et al, before taking up his brush and reverting to memories of an early training at the original Croydon Art School in the '60's. He learned a great deal from Ken Bates in Epsom Adult Education, before Ken (regrettably deceased) asked him to take a class. He has taught drawing and painting privately, whilst developing his figurative drawing and painting. He likes to work en plein air when possible.
He is influenced by light, by colour and the telling a 'story' in a painting - or photograph.
