About

Hi, I’m Richard, an artist and designer who loves creating unique and original abstract artworks inspired by nature and various destinations.

Thank you for visiting my website and I hope you really enjoy looking at my latest artwork. I love creating for interior spaces and my latest collection of abstract art is titled ‘The Acquisition’.

‘The Acquisition’ signifies a new chapter in my creative journey after originally starting out as a textile designer (www.richardbakerdesigns.co.uk) and gradually developing my skillset as a creative. 

I have been able to make a natural progression from creating unique motifs that form surface pattern designs on fabric to digitally printed canvases, right through to the current original paintings. I have always felt that my ability to explore and experiment with different media and techniques that the creative boundaries often overlap. I do not believe in limitations.

My current canvas art panels are constructed using the highest quality materials which compliment amazing interior spaces whether it be your home, office, restaurant… the list goes on!

Please get in touch if you would like to commission a bespoke, one-off original piece of artwork that fulfils your specific brief.

My Process

I love exploring textures within all of my work, which underpins the foundation of every piece that I create. I use texture paste to build up layers of interest which I like to highlight as metallic areas. I enjoy working with acrylics mainly, but will also mix media along the creative journey.

All artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and can be supplied with an Insurance Valuation, as I realise that artwork is quite an investment that should be protected.

It is important to me that my artwork is seen in its very best condition for many, many years to come, so ensuring the canvas panels never warp over time is my top priority. For this reason, I mainly use wood and aluminium constructed panels that can be made to any bespoke size. Circular panels can be made too.

I have the panels glued and wrapped in linen, where the linen is glued to the front panel and pinned to the back.

I have the panels made bespoke to order and I add three layers of Gesso primer which are sanded down, before the creating process begins.

If you are considering your own commissioned piece to compliment your chosen interior space, I look forward to hearing about your project.
