Richard Bawden’s paintings are drawn from life, and as a printmaker he works predominantly in etching and lino. He is attracted by atmosphere, oddity, pattern and the strangely austere, which he finds in the world around him. His domestic interiors, cats, the greenhouse, plants, and the garden are a record of his life in Hadley.
Born in 1936, he studied painting, printmaking and graphic design at Chelsea,St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art.
Richard is a painter and printmaker. He is also a designer, whose work includes; book illustration, posters, murals, mosaics, textiles, engraved glass, furniture and cast iron seats.
He is an active member of the Royal Watercolour Society, the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, and the New English Art Club and a former Chairman of Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop in Sudbury.
