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, NHS et al, before taking up his brush and reverting to influence 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 asked him to take a class. He has taught drawing and painting, whilst himself developing semi-representational painting. He likes to work en plein air when possible.
He is influenced by light, colour and telling a story in a painting - or photograph. (Richard is also a keen photographer).
