As Ryszard Zenon Nejranowski, he was born at Blackburn, Lancashire on 4 September 1949, son of Jozef Nejranowski (1905-1962) and his wife Wanda née Gadzina (7 June 1925-4 December 1990).

Richard then completed a post-graduate degree at Goldsmiths College, London 1984-1985 and, after a career in Art teaching, is now a full-time artist designer. His style, colourist/post-minimalism, pares down his paintings to essentials and aims to move the viewer in a subjective way. His work is underpinned with references to landscape and sea, changing weather patterns, architecture, and memory.
