Please either phone or email Richard for an appointment to view his work.
A life long love of art spanning several decades, started with a picture framing, picture cleaning and restoration to opening a gallery in Ashbourne in the 1970's selling his own work as well as local artists Rex Preston, Robin Gibbard, Michael Crawley, Roy Berry and many others.
After a short break Richard went back to art in the form of restoring antique ceramics and enamel clock dials. Upon retiring from this work he went back to his love of painting and especially birds.
After trying watercolour he eventually settled on top quality acrylic to be able to get the fine detail needed. Living in Ashbourne is a great place to observe nature with Dovedale and the peaks on the doorstep.
He is in a fortunate position to Fly Fish the River Dove and observe birdlife such as Kingfishers, Dippers, Wagtails, Treecreepers and many more, also he has a friend who keeps and breeds Raptors having access to photograph and sketch at first hand.
