My name is Ric, I am passionate about wild camping, bushcraft and painting in remote wilderness. I enjoy sharing and documenting my nature trips, by painting and documenting them on my YouTube Channel. I hope that through my work, I can inspire people to go into nature and enjoy it with respect, helping preserve what we have left of it.
On this website you can find:
- Some of my work for sale here
- Updated lists of the gear I use outdoors
- Free basic painting lessons for those that want to "give it a go"
- And sometimes, a wilderness painting workshop. I don’t do those often, so make sure to subscribe to the newsletter to stay on top of it.
The woods, people, books and internet.
BA, Illustration and Fine Art at Swansea’s Institute of Higher Education, University of Wales - UK
Note: I did not learn how to paint in college since representational art and traditional skills were frowned upon by art teachers at the time. I didn't feel like throwing paint in a canvas to "express my emotions", nor felt like creating useless contraptions to be displayed as "art " in an installation. I wanted learn real painting and drawing techniques. That’s why I studied traditional illustration instead, no computers or apps involved,
So when it comes to painting, I am mostly self taught.
