Richard was born in Scotland and recently moved to Perth from Britain in November 2016 with his Canadian wife.
Richard’s art is as multi-faceted as his mind. In fact, the depth and breadth of the mind itself, and everything it conjures up in this world, is the constant underlying theme in all his works. The subject matter can be still and reflective, at other times turbulent or playful, but is always enquiring – and often provocative.
Richard is accomplished in acrylics, watercolour, drawing, and oils, but the latter remains a favourite. He prides himself in not being a slave to any particular style or technique.
Born in Glasgow, Richard acquired a first class BA Hons in Fine Art as a mature student. He married late in life and his Canadian wife brought him to Perth, where they now reside.
Richard is keen to immerse himself in the landscape and culture of Eastern Ontario and to see where that takes him artistically.
