Artist and teacher
For more details of Dick’s life and career see the excellent obituary by Christopher Pemberton published in The Guardian in Nov 2001.
When the classes came to an end, we decided we wanted to continue, so an informal group was formed. We met once a month at each other’s houses, drew all morning and then had lunch together. Both my parents were members as were a number of other talented amateur and professional artists, as well as Dick. There was no teacher, but feedback was given and accepted.
There was always a break during the morning for coffee and biscuits and in time the group became known as The Biscuits. It continued long after I had left Norfolk and with some changes of membership ran until 2018, over forty years.
