Richard Woodgate

Artist & Woodcarver

Richard specialises in paintings of the west country and its wildlife. Mist shrouded moorland, wooded countryside and rocky shorelines all feature in his paintings, together with some of our most treasured wildlife. Richard uses acrylic paints to capture the detail of these natural scenes and he sees his paintings as a celebration of nature throughout the changing seasons.

When working with wood, Richard uses native and locally sourced timbers to produce various wooden items. Using mainly hand tools and natural wax finishes, the intrinsic beauty of the wood is brought out, creating unique pieses and harking back to the "Arts and Crafts Movement" of the early twentieth century where artisan craftsmanship was prized over mass production.
