Richard is a multi disciplinary artist based in London. He studied at Wimbledon School of Art. His practice encompasses sculpture, installation, public art, photography and film. He has also been a visiting lecturer at Central St. Martins, Wimbledon College of Art and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. His work is held in  private and public collections here and internationally.

" Although I still enjoy a wide range of creative interests my work has increasingly become focused on concerns surrounding the fragility of life and the process of ageing.  

Recent work is largely centred around the human figure, exploring notions of transience and mortality. It attempts to navigate the delicate relationship between denial and acceptance as we struggle to balance an instinct for preservation with our inevitable decay. 

In some ways the work is an attempt to embrace, even celebrate the process in a society that seems to be terminally obsessed with youth."
