Born in Yorkshire in 1956 Ric has been painting professionally for nearly thirty years and within that time his work has adapted through many styles until you see what you have before you today. In 1976 he became a freelance artist specialising in wildlife, which he still follows today but only to commission. Ric also has a fascination with mural art within which he has completed many commissions including for The Royal Armouries, The Royal Shakespeare Museum, The Tower of London and many other museums and retail outlets. Ric is currently specialising in Seascape paintings which are both tranquil and pleasing to the eye. He often reflects that it has been one of his greatest pleasures in life to walk along a beach at sunset taking in the environment. He has now taken this one step further and has applied his happiness to canvas for all to see.
