Richard K Potter

Richard's early years were spent in Belgium and Spain until the age of ten when he came back to the UK. Having undertaken a Media and Design degree at Portsmouth as a mature student and a PGCE in Art and Design, Richard then attained an MA in Cultural and Critical Theory at Brighton. Richard enjoys the history of art and architecture and draws inspiration from images, text, nature and the built environment.

On his own view and approach, Richard says: "My own belief about art is that it is a shared experience and that an artist should be interested in the emotional integrity of his work. Art should awaken the senses and give something to the viewer whether it is aesthetic or experiential. Art, I feel, should have a human face and a warm heart awakening the innate creativity in others."
