Richard Rowan


One of Richard’s earliest memories of being an artist is at six years old. His dad, an architect, had some work on the kitchen table, whilst they were watching television Richard borrowed one of his dad’s just finished architectural drawings and filled all the rooms in with poster paint and drew people in the buildings. He had never seen his dad so upset and angry, although his dad is now his biggest fan! From a design and fine art background, after finishing his artist’s training Richard found an artist’s life very difficult to establish and a designer’s one very frustrating. Richard ended up in the motor sport business ranging from world rally to Formula 1 – travelling worldwide for the next five years. Having seen so much of the world Richard’s whole outlook on life changed, he never put down his drawing pad, constantly sketching cars and scenery. Never feeling quite at home constantly living out of a suitcase, Richard would produce art pieces when back at home and sell them at local galleries, this leading to commissions. Leaving the race track and ‘go go’ lifestyle behind changed everything for Richard and has since devoted all of his time to art on glass, his preferred medium, using a unique style of oil painting. “I take my inspiration from the great outdoors. Landscapes and skies are constantly changing, giving a constant flow of inspiration which I enjoy exploring. I love being able to capture a moment in time” richard [B.1974, Northampton] rowan
