Artist - Dick Twinney

Originally from Teignmouth in Devon, Dick Twinney has lived and worked from his Cornish Studio in St. Columb Major for nearly 40 years. Having a great passion and interest in our wildlife, coast and countryside from an early age, he has made it his goal in life to share this enthusiasm with others through his art and writing. 
His highly detailed realistic artwork has gained international recognition and over the years he has provided illustrations for over 25 books by some of the worlds leading publishers, including Collins, Longmans, Macmillan and Readers Digest. His wildlife art has also featured on many series of collectors plates, greetings cards, giftware and prints
Although his art has spread worldwide and his books published in different languages he prefers to be known as a local artist confining, by choice, his exhibitions and shows to Cornwall and the West Country. 
Refusing to follow any trends in art or turn to a more contemporary style of painting he continues to paint in the traditional style of the artists he grew up with, especially Archibald Thorburn and Charles Tunnicliffe whose work he has emulated and been inspired by since childhood.
"The Falconer's Favourite" - chromacolour on canvas
His work has featured in many newspapers and magazines including the Sunday Times, The International Artists Magazine, Country Life and here in Cornwall The Cornish Guardian, The West Briton and the North Cornwall Advertiser.
He now has a regular weekly spot, The Art of Dick Twinney in the Western Morning News daily newspaper.
Dick prints and publishes his own Giclee limited edition prints from his St. Columb Studio using the very latest technology and only genuine Epson pigmented inks on archival paper.
He has written and illustrated two books of his own, The Painted Seasons and From Hedgerow to High Tor and is now in the middle of a third which will be entitled Wildlife and Waterways. This will feature some of Cornwall and Devon's rivers  from source to sea and the wildlife to be found in and around them.
Dick has his own Wildlife Art Gallery at his Studio in St. Columb Major where he welcomes visitors and you can see and discuss all his latest artwork including work in progress, but please phone first.
