Richard Freer MA BA (Hons.) PGCE

My artwork focuses on two aspects. Firstly expressing emotions and thoughts relating to situations I am dealing with in life. Secondary is that of developing technical skills and pushing the possibilities of what can be expressed emotionally with painting and drawing.

Gemma Colins – Leicestershire Life Magazine

‘ Drawing directly from nature’s ever changing palette Richard Freer is an artist intrigued by the colour effects, textures and sensory perceptions of nature’

Peggy Gibson – Modern Artists Gallery

‘ Richard Freer is a ‘specialist of light’  his paintings are energizing and require no added artificial light,  just thriving on natural daylight  and magically taking the viewer far away to a warm place.’
