Richard Horner is a self-taught fine artist and described himself as a die-in-the wool Yorkshireman but for the last 30 years has been living in self-imposed exile in Wiltshire. Born in the Fifties, and brought up in the picturesque surround of the Yorkshire dales, Richard has pursed his art at varying degrees of competence over his long professional life. He has dabbled in most mediums but finds the switching between Watercolour and Oil his most rewarding.
Subject matter ranges from landscapes, still life to portraits with the living world his inspiration. Some of these creations have also been accompanied by self-penned poetry.
Richard is also one of the three founder members of the Avon and Bourne Valley Art Exhibition. Undertaken over a weekend, each year, usually in the middle of May. Located in the small Salisbury Plain village of Figheldean and attracts circa 200 exhibits from mostly amateur artists.
The exhibition is now in its twelfth year, has free entry to the general public, but encourages voluntary donations which are donated to local charities.

A variety of subject matter stimulates my creativity from photoshoots to real life. It's my visual imagination and the white canvas that generates the urge to fill the blank void with something selling a message. Taking me on journey of discovery - sometimes quite negative, but most of the time the idea or subject matter fuels a reasonable result.
