Richard graduated from Brighton University in 2002 with a BA (Hons) in Illustration, however he freely admits that his passion is painting and drawing. He has worked on many projects over the years and now has a large portfolio. During this time he has ensured his output is varied rather than focusing on the same medium and subject. He has a particular fascination with painting people and attends a life drawing session every week. "The human figure and portraiture is a constant inspiration in my work and always will be"
