Richard Baker

British artist b.1948, based in Cambridge UK. Paintings and drawings in oil, pastel, watercolour etc.
Oil, watercolour, indian ink, gouache, pastel, mixed media.

I have been involved in many exhibitions over the years, notably at the Conservatory Gallery in Cambridge during the 80’s and 90’s, the Linda Blackstone Gallery formerly in Pinner for a long period commencing in 2001), the Bow House Gallery in Barnet (from 1991 for several years until the owners retired) the Whittlesford Gallery near Cambridge (several successful years until change of ownership), and the CDS (twice a year since 1983). For a period I entered work for exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, and examples were shown at the NEAC, the RBA and the RI. In 1998 my drawings were featured in the book Figure Sketching School (Readers’ Digest/Quarto Publishing).  I am pleased to see I have an entry in David Buckman’s “Artists in Britain since 1945” where I am described as “a versatile artist and draughtsman”.

A large folder of past work is available on Flickr (opens in a new window).
