Artist and Photographer
Before taking up painting seriously in various media (but especially oils and pastels), 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. He has now taken up his brush and reverted 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 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.
