Rick lives in Auckland, New Zealand and is a highly regarded and experienced cinematographer, who has turned his creative attention to other visual arts. His love of the outdoors and natural materials, particularly wood, has given him a passion for modern marquetry.
He has recently held two solo exhibitions of his work, participated in several group exhibitions and completed commissioned marquetry art. His work is held in a number of private collections in New Zealand.
Rick works from Dornwell Studios – a collaboration of professional artists working in various media from a shared studio space at Three Kings, Auckland.
Sailing is a significant source of inspiration for his approach to art. Rick owns a timber classic yacht which he sails in Auckland and coastal New Zealand.
