Born in Sunderland, Richard has exhibited and sold his work locally, nationally and globally for over a decade now. Richard now works from a purpose built garden studio at his home in Sunderland. As a family man, children and family are a big inspiration for Richards current series of work, looking at childhood adventures with friends, pets and favourite toys. Richard works mostly in Oils on Canvas mixing bright and playful colours to create vibrant heart warming images.
‘I love working in bright cheery colours, capturing scenes of joyful innocence. My family are my biggest inspiration and driving force behind my art. Every day is a new adventure’.
