Originating from Teignmouth, Devon, Dick and his wife Ann moved to Cornwall in 1970 and settled in the market town of St Columb.
Handrearing a variety of rescue animals and observing them and the natural environment around him, much of his work has been used as illustrations in books and magazines. He also exhibits in group shows locally and further afield.
In 2017 he completed a mural for the wall adjacent to St Columb's Town Hall, depicting past and present participants in the local hurling contest, which takes place annually.
