Richard Skelton

Richard Skelton is an artist, composer and publisher. His work is informed by landscape, evolving from sustained immersion in specific environments and deep, wide-ranging research incorporating toponymy and language, ecology and geology, folklore and myth. Working with Autumn Richardson he has initiated a series of poetic place-studies entitled ‘Field Notes’, published as pamphlets through their own Corbel Stone Press. Together they edit ‘Reliquiae’, an annual journal of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, translations and visual art.
