Richard is an artist whose love of boats and the sea has always informed his life and work.
Living and working in Cornwall for nearly 50 years he uses the special light and sea to reflect his feeling for the nautical atmosphere in his paintings.
He learned to sail and started to paint aged just 5 and has combined the two to create works that now reside in collections around the world.
Having followed a lifetime career in interior design he now devotes most time to his photography and creating artworks.
Although boats and seascapes are his favourite he has completed many commissions in other subjects, notably buildings and architecture and also flowers and animals.
