About the artist
Originally from Liverpool and having studied Illustration at Kent Institute of Art & Design, Richards graduated in 1992. Inspired by unusual buildings and architecture, Nick Richards tries to capture the personality of a building, almost as if he were drawing its portrait. He regularly sketches on location around London or on his travels, focusing mainly on historic buildings. He works mostly in pen, ink and watercolour.

Nick also likes to draw and paint portraits of people in oil on canvas, and regularly attends life drawing events all over London.
