I have been keeping an eye on Alvin Richard's art for some time and I'm pleased to see his current exhibition at Handiworks Gallery is such a success.
Alvin, a self-taught artist of over twenty years experience also works as a registered nurse and it's this experience that has led him to truly appreciate how fragile life can be. This has in turn become the subject of his painting life, observing the joys of everyday existence.
