In Richard's recent work he was explored some of the lesser known - but no less characterful - corners of Gosport.
Born in Portchester in 1947, Richard was apprenticed in Art & Design at a design studio in Portsmouth before completing his formal studies in Illustration, Design, Lettering and Typography. A long-time Gosport resident, he worked for many years as an illustrator at The News and as a graphic artist at HMS Collingwood, and has also taught at local colleges.
Richard has been a keen watercolourist since being given a set of paints as a boy, taking great inspiration from the countryside and the local area.
