I am 57 and have been painting on and off for most of my life, however it is only in the last few years I have had the time to devote to my passion. Having now sold paintings locally as well as France and the USA via my website, www.rickbrind-art.co.uk I have now extended my portfolio to include animal and pet portraits. Under taking commissions from clients both home and abroad.
I'm a member of the 'paint my photo' website where fellow artists and photographers exchange reference material and ideas, from around the globe. This allows me to work on many subjects where extended travel or copyright would otherwise prohibit.
I use all types of media in my artwork and am always experimenting with different ideas and subjects from the pictorial to the abstract. I'm also an avid photographer, particularly of nature and wildlife.
