Richard Tuff was born in Manchester in 1965. Since graduating from Winchester School of Art, Richard has sold design work to many companies in England and abroad Richard moved to Falmouth in Cornwall at the end of 1988 and began to concentrate on his paintings.
He printed his first silkscreen with Coriander Studios in 1993 and transferred his gouache technique very successfully to the new medium. Since then his prints have gone from strength to strength with demand outstripping supply.
His work has a unique charm; colours and light are the starting point for each picture. His colours are rich and strong with many subtle changes of light and tone. His work is predominantly based on Cornish scenes – harbours, towns and landscapes, each time capturing the essence of the West Country. However, his work is not restricted to Cornwall alone – the bazaars and harbours of Morocco and the street scenes of Brazil have also inspired Richard with equal success.All Artists
