Background

Gordon Richards eventually established a career as a chef an by the time he left Melbourne he was recognised as one of the most innovative chefs in Victoria. He was highly acclaimed for the farming of his own escargot, yabbies and organically grown herbs and produce which were presented in flamboyant style on the menus at The Eagle Hawk Restaurant, Maldon and the Shamrock Hotel, Bendigo.

In the early 90’s his passion for drawing and painting and his artistic talents and energy were re-channelled… and so began his extraordinary career as an artist.  The Result was the emergence of an instinctive style producing bold, humorous yet poignant reflections of the human form in all its frailty.
