Meet Richard

Artist - feel free to ask me something

The very beginning.

I moved to Finland shortly after graduating from University in Business and Marketing.  Not being one to follow the rules or the normal path, I jumped on a plane looking for an adventure.

My parents gave me a travel watercolour set to take with me saying it might be useful. After teaching for a year I joined Nokia but struggled on the smaller than expected salary. quite by accident friends noticed some of my watercolours and wanted to buy them. After a while I was allowed to put my first exhibition on within the corridors of the Nokia buildings. It is these sales that enabled me to fly too-and-fro from Finland to see family.
