  • Biography

    Richard Parsons is an artist and farmer from Waikerikeri Valley, Clyde who has been painting for the past 30 years. He has farmed cattle and sheep with his wife Jacqui for the past 32 years. They have 3 grown up children.
    Richard has been involved in art for the past 45 years; writing and illustrating his own picture books before moving onto sketches of animals in his teenage years. Over the past twenty years Richard has explored with oil and canvas, capturing the beautiful surroundings of his home and region in stunning landscapes. He soon developed his own unique style to capture the dramatic landscape of Central Otago and the West Coast.
    Richard has always had a rich appreciation for the stunning landscape of New Zealand and tries to capture the land with a timeless feel and the trappings of man tastefully erased. His paintings reflect the subtle lights and colours of Central Otago. He also does interpretations of West Coast scenes and Rivers.
