Richard Symonds generously agreed to share his experience climbing trees with the folks from Hammock Town. Richard has been committed to wildlife conversation for over 20 years. Entirely self-taught Richard dedicated his life to painting and drawing wild animals in their natural habitat. He’s held various exhibitions and auctions around the world. 🗺
In 2006 Richard hit headlines completing his first life-size oil painting of an African bull elephant named “Tembo”. Richard’s painting sold for a staggering $100,000.00 to a private collector with a large donation from the sale going directly to The Born Free Foundation.
Richard has a rare ability to capture the true essence of each animal he paints. His artwork
has been published in many leading magazines, books, Limited Edition prints, greetings cards and multi media.
