About


Richard is an artist, writer and editor living in Glasgow, UK. He was born in Sheffield (1985) into a paternal dynasty of hairdressers and a maternal family who worked in the city's steel industry.

He grew up on the county border of Derbyshire and Yorkshire next to the Peak National Park and takes inspiration from walking as ethnographic practice, histories of place, and narrative form in describing relationships. As an artist he makes exhibitions and performances driven by writing and sculptural objects. He also writes, edits and provides content/asset management for independent publishers and arts organisations.
