Richard’s art is as multi-faceted as the man’s 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 BAHons 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.
