About Us

Richard Allport is the creative driving force behind the Easy Art Pro seminars and workshops and he brings with him a wealth of multi-discipline experience and expertise garnered from over two decades of commercial art industry experience in various fields including the computer games, children’s television design, feature film special effects, theme park design, toy prototyping and packaging and intellectual property development and branding industries.

Paul Farrer “Richard Allport is a truly amazing visionary. His artwork is inspired and working on projects with him as director is always a delight - he is supportive yet challenging, enthusiastic and driven. Composing music for his TV and film work makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning eager to see how each new scene unwraps, and whatever score I come up he always manages to trump everything by filling the screen with such richly original, startling images and characters.”
                              Paul Farrer - BMI Award winning composer for film and television

His career as an art and animation director has seen him provide creative solutions for clients such as the BBC, the Discovery Channel, Disney and Paramount Films, and his reputation for inspired originality has resulted in projects he has designed receiving international creative awards and industry acclaim.

Rebecca Naina"Richard's originality and creativity are both inspiring and motivating to teachers and students alike. His creativity is infectious!"
Rebecca Naina - Learning support and creative art coordinator- Hamstead Hall School

“Having had the good fortune to work along side so many incredibly talented people throughout my career, designers, animators, composers, children’s authors, editors not to mention the countless other inspirational individuals that have helped me see a project from conception through to completion, I feel honoured to have learned so much from them and their own creativity that I can truly say that without them my career wouldn’t have been the exciting and inspiring journey it has been. I owe them a great deal and thank them for being the truly creative professionals they are!” Richard Allport 2009

Zara Burroughs"As a music teacher I can clearly see the potential for Richard's workshops and lesson ideas to reach across the curriculum into many other subjects especially subjects like music"
Zara Burroughs - Music teacher- Wolverhampton Academy
