Born in 1938, Richard Tully spent his early life in South London and Liverpool. He is married
with two children and lived in Hampshire before settling in Surrey, He worked throughout
the UK and spent some time working abroad before becoming involved with the National
Trust working on the River Wey. Richard has always been interested in art but until
taking early retirement some eight years ago, had never been given the opportunity to
develop his interest.
Richard endeavoured to experiment with oils and later with watercolours at classes but found
that his main interest lay in portrait work using pencil and pastel media. For the last few
years he has been involved in advising and running an art circle of twenty people each week.
Richard has been commissioned to do pen and ink drawings for a number of National Trust booklets
and exhibitions. He is additionally producing a series of drawings of local churches to be
reproduced as postcards.
