Having lived and worked in East Anglia since childhood, his art is firmly rooted in its landscape and his smallholding at 'Little Barton', School Road, Knodishall, Suffolk, where he and his wife had lived for 35 years, gave him a direct engagement with the landscape and made him conscious of just how big a part it has played in his life. An old-fashioned printmaker, making etchings and lithographs and indulging in his passion for drawing and painting. Richard has exhibited with the Contemporary Art Society and the Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries, London, and in both public and private galleries and is represented by Cobbold & Judd; Buckenham Galleries, Southwold and Snape Maltings Galleries, Snape.
