Richard Mayhew

Richard Mayhew was born in 1924 in Amityville, NY and moved to New York City in 1945. He studRichard Mayhew ied at The Brooklyn Museum Art School, Students League, Pratt Institute, Columbia University in New York and then abroad in Florence Italy at Academia.

Mayhew discovered his love of nature at an early age, it was part of his family heritage. His father descended from African-American and Shinnecock Indian families. His mother was of Cherokee and African-American descent. From his grandmother, Mayhew learned what he called the “nature lore, ways and attitudes” of Native Americans. He also learned to appreciate the water, earth, and sky he saw around him in his native Amityville, a small town on Long Island Sound.

He works from memory, not from sketches or photographs, and creates images that do not depend on a precise geographic location. “My paintings are based on improvisational internalized creative experience: I paint the essence of nature, always seeking the unique spiritual mood of the landscape.”
