Although he did not realize it at the time, this was the early foundation for his life’s work. His weird passion for design as a kid has now turned into a full-blown career.

Education and Early Career

This provided him with a solid foundation in design theory and an opportunity to refine his skills.

Transition into Art

Transition into Art Over the years, Rik Barwick has grown in confidence in calling himself an artist as well as a designer. During lockdown, he started selling original work from his home studio in Hartest, Suffolk, and discovered a new passion for relief printing. Printmaking sits between design and fine art, and he finds it to be a great place to be. Every print is unique and holds its beauty, creating a sense of anticipation every time he reveals a print from his press.
