Richard Holland

Richard has had an interest in art since

primary school, and probably inherited

this from his father's artistic talents.

He started painting watercolours avidly

in his early twenties and then exhibited

and sold his watercolours at a local

gallery. He then studied A level Art

between 1999-2001 and began

working in oils and steadily built up a

large collection of oil paintings along

with his original watercolours.

Before becoming a full time artist in

2006 he was a full time tutor teaching

at West Nottinghamshire College for

eleven years in the area of IT. For five

years over this period he was given

the chance to teach oil and

watercolour painting to mature

learners in the community. This gave

him the grounding he needed to begin

teaching his weekly classes,

workshops and painting holidays. In

2010 he completed a BA with honours

degree in Art History. He currently

demonstrates to art clubs around the
