When Richard was very young he filled sketchbooks with characters from Dr. Seuss and Tin Tin and then a little film called Star Wars cracked his head open and was like gasoline for the fires of his imagination. As Richard got a little older his love for science fiction and fantasy films grew. Magazines such as Fangoria, Starlog and Heavy Metal were also thrown into the inspiration engine. He built homemade costumes and weapons from whatever materials he could get his hands on, and his passion for creation began to take shape.
In his early twenties Richard began his career in set construction honing the skills of set building, scenic painting, prop building and model making. After a few years he moved onwards into the world of advertising where he worked on set as a props master, set dresser, set decorator and doing spfx. Combining his creative experience with love of design and working within a team environment, Richard moved into Art Direction and Production design where he has worked on hundreds of television commercials over the past twenty plus years.
“Seeing a project through from concept to reality is something that I bring thousands of hours of practical experience to, and it allows me to combine everything I’ve come to love about the process of bringing a project to life.”
