Hi there, I’m Richard.
I’m a Creative Photographer and Experimenting Artist. I have a passion for painting, art and patterns seen in all things in the man-made and natural worlds.
I’m semi-retired and actively interested in a wide range of subjects as the mood takes me. My journey has been one of appreciating the natural world, enjoying art, music, languages, buildings and continually learning and developing my abilities.
I was fortunate to be brought up in country and coastal regions of the UK. Spending much of my youth exploring our coasts, cliffs, fields, streams, ponds and woodlands, helped form my love of nature. I developed a love and affinity with the outdoors as well as a respect for all things in the natural world.
As a teenager, I enjoyed helping out on local farms. Learned to drive and reverse tractors and trailers, help with cultivating and harvesting as well as dealing with livestock. A father who was keenly interested and taught gardening continued my education about the varied plants and wildlife. I find looking at interesting colours and patterns in and around flowers, foliage, water, trees and fruit exciting.
It was obvious that my talents were more directed towards artistic and practical projects than to maths, physics or chemistry. I was lucky to have the opportunity to enjoy art, woodwork and metalwork lessons at school. Without doubt, these helped to form a grounding for my practical and design skills.
Continually interested in and supportive of our local and the greater environment. I’ve been physically active with local conservation trusts and fund raised for the WWF in the past too.
Join me and share more adventures with me as I develop new artistic style and create paintings and sketches of a multitude of images and subjects.

03. Want to get in touch?
I’m always looking for a new challenge. If you think I’d be a good fit to help you move forward, let’s have a chat and see where it goes!
I have an uncanny attention to detail. You’ll find it all throughout my work! I use the Atomic Blocks plugin because it’s also crafted with attention to detail.
I studied graphic design for four years under the great designer, painter and art educator, Paula Scher. Everything I learned goes into every project I start.
Communication is key, as they say! We’ll keep in regular contact about any projects we start to ensure you get the end result you’re looking for.
Fair, Friendly Pricing
I like to work with each client directly to ensure their project is scoped and priced according to the specs. We’ll work through the costs before we even start.

I’m accepting new clients through the rest of the year. Please drop me a line and we’ll get started with your next project!
