Artist Profiles » Richard Horner

Richard HornerRichard was born on the 11 August 1941 in Devonport, England. In 1952 his family immigrated to New Zealand where he attended Takapuna Grammar School, before starting work as a cartographer. ďAt Takapuna Grammar, art was my most enjoyed subject, my teacher was Owen Lee. Art was not offered as a sixth form subject and it was decided that I should follow a career similar to that of an Uncle in England; Cartography. Painting was not high on my agenda whilst working as a draughtsman and cartographer. By the 1970ís, when was pursuing a different non-drawing career, the urge to paint and draw returned and has never gone away. A love of the land and sea has led to my landscapes being the favoured subject in my paintings. Since the 1970ís I have exhibited in several joint and solo exhibitions in Auckland, the North Shore, Orewa and Warkworth. Commissions and purchasers have come from as far away as Australia, the UK and France. Two commissions have been to provide illustrations for New Zealand historical books.Ē Richard has been a member of the Mairangi Arts Centre since its early days in 1992 and regularly exhibits in the memberís exhibitions at the center.
