Artist & Author Richard FA White Invites you to step into his Creative World at Art&Books
Relax with a Good Book
What can be better than some 'me-only time', relaxing with a good book and a glass or two of excellent wine? Click on the Books image or 'Bookstore' in the menu bar above to see my published fictional and biographical novels.
For more than 50 years, I have explored and experimented with many creative ideas as well as occasional outrageous projects. Some turned out to be crazy indulgences that failed miserably, others have been successful, particularly in the last 10 years. The ones I care to showcase here are my paintings, prints, digital art, photographs and more recently, several published books.
I kicked off my creative adventures way back in 1973 with a friend, both working as freelance photographers for the Mirror Group, (yes, it wasn't the best plan working for Robert Maxwell!!). Within a few months and whilst holding down more reliable graphic design jobs, I worked part-time for press agencies including Reuters and Agence France Presse on some assignments overseas. These took me to countries and events that shaped my future decisions. With a young family, it was high time to take stock and earn a living as a graphic designer, artist, and publisher of a new magazine for the amazing sport of archery. Since 2001, following a family tragedy, I discovered a happy place as an artist and author where creative opportunities overcame loss and uncertainty in today's turbulent world.
Just in case any one or more of my outstanding and highly acclaimed creative gems manages to find some appeal amongst the devotees and collectors of fine art as well as readers of good books, your purchase(s) will be most gratefully received. Ten per cent of each sale will be donated to helping the 'Voices of Children' charitable cause in Ukraine. It will also enable me to prolong my passion for creative work. For that, I will be forever indebted. Thank you...Richard FA White
