Richard Browne, artist

Richard Browne is from Kerry but is currently traveling in the U.S.

Artist statement: "I am enthused by organically driven abstracts. For me its all about openess. The art assumes its own shape and life. I tend to see the natural world in my pieces but try not to lead them too much."
