About Richard

As a boy growing up in England, Richard spent many hours watching his grandfather create fine furniture. “The man was a master craftsman, employing traditional tools and working methods handed down through generations. He passed on to me to joy of creating something unique. I carry on these traditions in my own work.” Today as an adult, he views himself as actually building a painting, in perfect analogy to his grandfather building furniture.

“As I ‘build’ a painting, it is often the actual working methods that I am most drawn to. As I learned to finish fine furniture with layer upon layer of polish and wax, so I now find myself working with layer upon layer of color. This method of working triggers memories and feelings that I channel into my art, and it enables me to give form to my ideas.”
