Born London 1927
Richards education and art education all took place in London.
He attended Hornsey School of Art and from there moved on to a successful career in teaching with the Colleges of St. Mark and St. John, Chelsea and Plymouth.
His poetic and often allegorical style of painting place him at the heart of the British neo-romantic tradition and have won him numerous awards and commissions.
Richard was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour, and is also a member of the St. Ives Society of Artists.
Feeling the love
We spent some time looking for someone who could produce some solid wooden frames to mount our medals in. James, listened carefully to what we wanted and made us the exact high-quality frame we needed. Since then, we re-order every couple of weeks including some complex bespoke frames. We have been working together for about 10 years and I couldn’t recommend The Framing Centre highly enough.
Artmill Gallery & Framing Centre are our go to framers for The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth. They have a particular empathy for artists requirements and always produce work to the highest quality. Many of our exhibiting artists have been so impressed with the outcome that they go on to use Artmill for all their work.
