Richard Tuff is an accomplished painter and printmaker. His bright, contemporary landscapes go beyond the traditional to vibrantly coloured works that capture the upbeat feel of Cornish harbours and towns. Many of his influences come from further afield, from his experience of the harbours and bazaars of Morocco and the streets of Brazil and their visual emphasis on colour and light.
Richard Tuff was born in Manchester in 1965 and studied at Winchester School of Art. After a career as a textile designer, Richard moved to Cornwall in 1988 and became a full-time painter.
