Richard is a figurative artist who explores the psychological and emotive potential of the human face in a contemporary expressionistic style. Propelled by a fascination with process and experimentation, he works intuitively across a broad range of two and three-dimensional mixed media. His work often reflects the influence of his interest in ancient and aboriginal artifacts.

Though the human figure is a constant theme, experimentation in process is a driving force in his work and he thrives on trying a variety of approaches, including the use of encaustic wax, metal sculpture, and imported digital images such as graffiti.
