Rick is a successful cinematographer and established marquetry artist. His experience with interpretation, organisation, composition, texture and lighting informs his artistic approach. Driven by strong imagery his work explores the expressive potential of wood veneering, by introducing and experimenting with new materials such as paint, resin, paper and varnish.
