Richard is an Ontario-based artist whose oil, acrylic and mix media paintings reflect his tropical roots.
His work reflects a fondness for painting the North American landscape interspersed with themes of Caribbean life and its complimenting colorful palette.
Much of Richard’s paintings are derived from his love for nature and outdoor adventure. As an avid backpacker, one of his favorite hiking and camping spots is at Killarney, where the group of seven painted.
“In my approach I’m influenced deeply by the work of naturalist, conservationist and artist John Muir… ‘Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike’.
My ultimate underlying inspiration is etched in the fact that ‘the heavens declare the glory of God….and shows his handiwork”, I am just another reflector!”
Richard’s paintings are among some private collections throughout the Caribbean, North America and India with work on display at the Barbados Consulate, Toronto; Cultural Expressions Art Gallery, Pickering and Durham Region libraries.
Richard works full time within technology management.
