Richard Higham from Albany, Auckland, New Zealand, paints exquisitely rendered New Zealand bush and foliage acrylic on canvas. Born in Auckland 1957, Richard's interest and participation in art started from an early age. After completing secondary school, Richard chose Architecture to study and graduated with a B(Arch) from Auckland University in 1984. While working as an Architect and since leaving Architecture in 2002, Richard has continued to develop his interest in drawing and painting. Over the last 15 years Richard has exhibited individual works in local art awards and members' shows. In October 2012 he put together a substantial body of work for his first solo show at Northart, Auckland. Richard's vision is to be a top New Zealand landscape painter.
