Featured Artist


Born in London 1927.

Richard attended Hornsey School of Art, which led to a long and successful career teaching at the College of St Mark and St John, first in Chelsea and then Plymouth.

He has won numerous awards and commissions and was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour.

Richard is also a member of the St Ives Society of Artists. It has been said that Richard is a hidden gem of British Art. He works in several different mediums and has produced wonderful etchings, but is still painting at his easel every day.

The gallery always has a body of framed and unframed work available to view.

My expectation in framing is straightforward, though exacting. It needs to be impeccably crafted and not detract from the work with unnecessary embellishment, but support and enhance it with an elegant simplicity. I get this from 'the team' at The Framing Centre. The bonus is that it is all done with a ready acceptance of the quirky one-off; no hint of working to a well-trodden format here. This flexibilty is perfect for my needs and they have been my framers of choice for the past eight years.
