Born in Sunderland in 1975, Richard has exhibited and sold his work locally, nationally and globally for over a decade now.
He 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 Richard's current series of work, looking at childhood adventures with friends, pets and favourite toys. Richard works mostly with 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.’
