Property categories:
Richard MacNeil is a self taught artist who has always worked in the creative industry. Born in Worcester in 1958, he started his working life at Worcester Royal Porcelain and has always worked in the fields of sculpture, ceramics and graphics both in the UK and internationally.
Richard spent many years in the USA where his company Bronn produced large, exclusive sculptures of American western art. One of his greatest achievements was seeing his artwork displayed in the Oval office of The White House.

Returning to Suckley, Worcestershire, UK, Richard freelanced as an artist and card designer for many years. In 2009 together with his wife Judi and sons Daniel and Kyle he formed The Macneil Studio where they exclusively license the art of Richard Macneil. Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength; Richard Macneil artwork can be seen on many gift, homewares and paper products around the globe.

"Many artists have inspired me over the years – top of my list would be Frank Frazetta, N.C Wyeth, David Shepherd and Norman Rockwell. I seek inspiration from all sorts of sources; I like to travel, particularly in Europe and I'm never tired of historical architecture, culture and people. I'm always on the lookout – I spend hours people watching, and I also watch films and read. I consider the gestures people use, or the colours they're wearing. It's about taking all the little everyday things and observing them with a critical eye."

Richard has worked on developing his unique style that he paints in today. "My work has evolved over the last 30 years but there are always a few core techniques that remain in all my work. This starts with an interesting, balanced composition. I like to tell a story whenever possible – particularly with prints. Each piece of work I do has to have exciting, vibrant but balanced color and light and an interesting subject."
