Buck Richardson has been active across many creative media since arriving in Tropical North Queensland over 3 decades ago – photography, graphic art, textile printing, writing, publishing, and theatre. In recent years he has gained prominence as a digital artist winning many awards. Buck's visual work is chiefly influenced by his love of the natural beauty that abounds in Queensland, from the monumental to the minuscule. Current work in digital art uses photographs and digital media of people, landscapes, flora and fauna taken in the tropical region and other parts of Queensland.
