Richard is an artist with interests in accessibility, inclusion and imperfection and how art and music can intersect these points, remove barriers and make new forms of normal that include rather than exclude.

Using painting, drawing, music and interaction he works with communities and on his own to try and draw these disparate ideas together.

His most recent series of paintings, Astigmatism: Sight Paintings, are part of a wider documentary project made without the aid of lenses, which he wears to correct defective eyesight. The process forced a new way of looking that freely engaged with imperfection and embracing a positive conception of disability.

Richard also works for the learning disability arts organisation Heart n Soul as their creative associate, and is the founder and director of not-for-profit organisation Constant Flux, and he plays in several punk bands.
