Rich Gresswell Photography

Welcome to my portfolio

Hello. I am an artist based in York in the UK. I draw inspiration from nature: I like to get close up and explore the patterns, colours and textures of flowers and other botanical subjects such as trees and leaves. I am also interested in the forms presented by land and seascapes, particularly in my local area of Yorkshire. I combine my interest of art with a passion for natural history and walking. Over the years I've also noticed the benefits of my art in terms of personal mindfulness. I feel at peace with nature and more able to stay in the moment while working with such beautiful natural subjects. I have a process approach to my work, usually capturing the beginnings of images on my phone camera before building up my emergent pictures with layers of digital manipulation, usually on my phone using simple free photo-editing apps. I am interested in taking on commissions and exhibiting my work, so please contact me if you have something in mind. I also sell my work locally in several galleries, shops and at craft fairs.
