About the artist Cameron Richards is a portrait artist from Perth, Western Australia. His oil based portraits are deeply intimate, inviting the viewer to connect with the sitter, to explore the sitter's story. Whilst his portraits maintain a realism description, his backdrops derive inspiration from various techniques in expressionism, offering the opportunity to expand on his sitters' story through symbolism via intricate designs and patterns. Richards has exhibited in multiple competitions Australia-wide, however will be holding his first group exhibition in mid-October.
